I sat down with a bunch of altered paper pieces and made this stylized scarab one afternoon. After the glue was dry I brushed lightly with Lumiere paints and painted on the legs, which I believe he must be missing a pair but maybe not. Paper mosaic is a technique I return to again and again when I am in the mood to do something that can be “fiddly”…patience is definitely a requirement and I do not always have it. There isn’t any journaling on it yet but probably will be one day. This, as most all my a j pieces, is worked in my big altered mapbook.
