You never know when inspiration will strike, and if it doesn't try eating chocolate!
At a service station in Italy, near the town of Sansepolcro, birthplace of Piero della Francesca, a beautifully packaged chocolate bar was calling out to be purchased along with the Cappucinos! The design on the wrapper featured a mosaic in turquoise, gold, white and black. The chocolate itself was most unusual and very enjoyable and I kept the wrapper for my holiday journal, as I am in the habit of doing when travelling. The effect stayed in my mind and I eventually created a stamp collage based on this image, using stamps for most of the design, but also incorporating the gold foil which contained the original chocolate bar.
