Step 1

I covered the gessoed canvas with dictionary pages.

Next I painted the canvas with 3 colors and dried that.

Step 3

I adhered torn printed tissue paper onto the canvas.

Step 4

After that, I stenciled several different stencils with black paint all over the canvas. 

Step 5

Finally, I adhered the words which I had written on painted dictionary paper, and added gold dots throughout the piece.
