For this entry, I chose to work in my 7 Continent altered book.
I apologize for the glare, but I was using two all-spectrum lights to show this latest entry.
I originally was going to color the stenciled letters with different colors of red, then realized I have enough trouble just staying within the lines when I used a black Sakura pen.
That's when I decided to doodle little dots inside the letters. You can see I also outlined the torn edges of the central image in red ink.
For this entry in my 7 Continents altered book, my substrate, as usual, was a used file folder. I colored the background using a dark red paint pen. The central image was from a high end catalog on India, the stenciled letters were outlined using a black ink pen, and the pink dots were made using a pink paint pen. The central image was outlined using red pigment ink.
Thanks for visiting today. It means the world to me. And please don't forget to visit Art Journal Journey where more inspiring art journal shades of red can be found.
