I got this fortune a while ago from a lunch date with my hubby, and it said “Keep an eye out for someone special.” I just loved this thought. I know, Chinese fortunes are dorky and made up, but I dig them anyways. You do too, right? Admit it!
Anyways, I decided to make a picture and use the fortune. I gathered a few other things I wanted to use, like pages from books and a few lines of poetry from one of my poems. I began gluing them to the canvas.
I added some patterns and other papers.
When I had all the papers on, I started on the picture.
Added some more paint layers…
… added more colors and paper… and decided that I wanted her glasses thicker…
… then to finish it, I put the Chinese fortune in the middle-ish of the picture.

I’m so glad you shared this thought and page, Cherie! I love working with Chinese “fortunes” in my jewelry…their dorkiness is part of the charm 🙂
Dorkiness and charm… who would have thought they’d be used in the same sentence! haha I know you’ve used them in jewelry, and I LOVE it when you do. Your jewelry is really amazing to me. Just had to tell you again.

Glad to see I’m not the only one. 🙂
