{hope} chunky book front
Tonight I made this 4" x 4" mixed media collage using text from a foreign book, a vintage image printed on vellum, acrylic paint, an oil pastel "crayon", manuscript tablet page, a black crayon, a button, hardware, and rub on letters on kraft colored cardstock. This is my contribution to a chunky book to benefit the victims of Katrina. Participation information found at Chubbyville.

This is really REALLY pretty. The concept "hope" and how you've chosen to depict it are simply beautiful.
