ALMATY JOURNAL PAGE

So here is my first piece of work produced here in Almaty! The three large letters ALA were cut out from one of the labels attached to our packing cases, they are the code letters for Almaty airport!
The corrugated card in the corner of the page came from a box of chocolates I was given last week.
And the white circles were made by dipping a Kazakhstan loo roll middle into gesso!!
