For the last two days I have been working on these scrolls. I woke up the other day with this idea in my head. So I sat down and began creating them.
Took out my folder of miscellaneous book pages, random vintage papers, and the Hungarian Books I purchased in Budapest, and began creating these scrolls. Some were wrapped with cheesecloth, others with paper twine, a few were dipped in beeswax, and others were just left as is. I still feel this need to create more. Many more.
Some days I wish my creative urges came with a game plan so I knew what was coming next.

Walking around Budapest for the last 2 weeks has pushed me further into my concept of layering. All around I see layers of some sort. Layers on the building from weathering, pollution, and construction. Layers of paint and rust on metal. Layers of history of this beautiful country and culture
