This super simple recipe was in the winter edition of Pasticcio Quartz, a small, independent art zine published quarterly by Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn. Lots of you will recognize Angela from Lost in Space, The Sound of Music, etc. What you may not know is she's now an artist and she and Sarah create the most wonderful art books together. One of my favorites is, In This House: A Collection of Altered Art Imagery and Collage Techniques
