Day 189: Newspaper Day


     Today's mission is to make something with newspaper.  The books says to make the biggest thing you can, but it also gives readers the freedom to tweak the prompts a bit and I decided to go small.  I started with clipping headlines from the papers in the recycle bin.  It's all to easy to find articles and headlines about the various ways people are mistreating each other locally and around the world.  I read some of these things and can't help but think, why can't we all just get along?  Anyway, this piece utilizes a piece of scrap mat board and the aforementioned headlines combined with white acrylic and black stamping ink.  The ink blends pretty well where the paint is and makes a nice texture.
