I love Carl Sandburg's poetry, and this quote is from his “Washington Monument by Night,” stanza 4. I found the citation at Bartleby.com.
I am not sure I really like how this atc turned out. I wanted to use the pink background paper I'd made using the polished stone technique with alcohol, pink inks, and silver metallic paint. I stamped the quote over it and embossed it with black detail powder. I ran some glue around the edges and poured a mixture of pink microbeads, some seed beads, and tiny bugle beads over the glue. I glued on some butterfly sequins in pink and silver to balance the empty spaces.
I have to admit, its much nicer to look at than the scan shows, but I am still of a mixed mind when I look at it. Maybe it's all the pink.
