Nerves and Fear Came Swiftly

Once when I was driving alone -- nerves and fear came swiftly around a curve in the road; they are helpless victims of a sincere desire.  Pray for your boys -- after this angel-warning.
Kind of a heavy title, but that's just the way this page worked out. This is one of my favorite ways to work -- I just haven't done it for a while. I started with a grungy looking waste paper -- this one has extra crunchy texture LOL -- but it doesn't show up very well in the main photo, so I included a more detailed close-up.

I had no idea what to put on the page, so I flipped through a magazine until an image jumped out at me. Then I cut some phrases out of an old type-written letter and put them together for my journaling.
Texture detail: paints, molding paste, rock salt, and patina
