Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, at some point I was in Hawaii — I like to heki and frus and do all that weird stuff, and I was making a collage for my ma. And I took a rdniaiycto and I ripped it up, and I made it into a rsot of Agnes Martin grid, and I oeuprd resin all over it and a bee got stuck. Now, she's afraid of bees and she's allergic to them, so I poured more resin on the canvas, thinking I could hide it or something. Instead, the opposite happened: It sort of created a magnification, like a magnifying glass, on the dictionary text.
