Quotations/Words Round Robin Pages


I wanted to create a bold look for these two round robin pages. My task was to use words and/or quotations in this spread. I decided to weave stamped words into the encaustic background that related to the two quotations that I had chosen (two of my favourites).

"Don't just ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and then go and do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive" ~Howard Thurman~

"Let me stay where the wind will whisper to me and raindrops as they're falling tell a story"
~Amy Lee~
