coffee filters

today i was at a meeting. there was a big bottle of cranberry juice. i spilled a bit on the table and mopped it up with a coffee filter. i liked the delicate look it had on the filter. it was a dreamy ballerina pink. i liked this so i kept soaking it in the cup for more color. the coffee filter gives a pretty, delicate effect to the collage. the scan doesn't capture it well at all but there are two more layers underneath the coffee filter. a text page and tissue paper with red dots i use quite a bit in my journals.
