Why Must Size Matter?
I have done some more work on my current altered book page. For those of you just tuning in, my project deals with the issues girls face with regard to their body as they grow up today. This particular page addresses what I grew up thinking. My motivation for this project is my amazing one year old daughter. I want her to grow up respecting her body – something I am still trying to learn to do. For more about this project, check out these posts:

- I missed my scissors and glue.
I used the wax resist technique that is part of this month’s GPP Street Team’s Crusade to add a layer of “thinner is better” on top of the existing words on the page and below the paint.
I love the idea of text on top of text. I think I will add another layer using a bold font printed acetate. I will place the acetate between the page and the tags.
I also added some text on the picture page. I used a white Sharpie Poster Paint Pen. (I must take a moment to thank Julie for turning my onto them – THANKS JULIE!)
Now, even though I am neither lonely nor wicked, I am off to peruse the contents of my pathetically empty fridge.
