The altered book I've been working on has a spinner on the front cover, so I had a niche with a turning screw and nut on this first spread. I pondered between clockfaces and different turning images and planned to make a RAK spread with different acts of kindness radiating from the niche and an arrow attached to the nut (= it would randomly point at different options) so I painted the spread in yellow already some weeks ago and kept working on the rest of the book. This resulted in a pile of underpapers obviously waiting to be used for collage! Here is a picture of the spread with only the tree trunks. The ones on the right have been sewn along the edges, the one on the left is on a thick block of pages, so the sewing effect is actually from a happy "print" on the underpaper.
I stamped some little birds started arranging leaves on the trees. As I built the collage I started liking the scene and became cautious about my original idea of journaling around the niche. I built a blue sun (after all, my ground is pink and the sky is yellow...), and decided to give up on the RAK idea for now. I like this spread, it looks happy and bright, as if it was from a childrens book (remember Eric Carle?) and there is space for the arrow and journaling if I want to add it later on.
