Even if you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere. That, in a nutshell, is the story of this creation. The goal was to use Citra Solv on National Geographic magazine pages and transfer the magical images to fabric.
There was a YouTube video which mentioned this possibility but there was never a followup. The procedure was to spray Citra Solv onto the magazine pages, turn them face down onto the fabric and then them cover with plastic wrap.

Now I know why there was never a followup video. It doesn't work and here is proof.

So the alternative was to scan the altered magazine pages, take them into Photoshop, manipulate them some more and then print the images on fabric. I was hoping to avoid all these time consuming steps.
So to tie this into our challenge, this was the beginning of a new technique and a plunge into the unknown with no preconceived notion of what the result would be. I looked at Paul Klee paintings for inspiration, but the resulting piece does not in anyway come close to the inspiration I had hoped to somehow emulate.
