Back into it...Part 2

I wanted the journaling for this piece to be juxtaposed. I wanted vibrancy and whimsy. I decided to try my new Derwent Inktense pencils (I was inspired by a recent article by Tam). All that remained was the layout. I was considering several, when I received a message from Kelly regarding a Tangle post I had done.

WHAM! the idea hit me. I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

So I sketched out the design with a 3H pencil, then erased all but a trace with my kneadable. Then I added colour (note the cunning placement of a heart over a bleed through)



I then went over the pencil with my paintbrush.



I added more pencil. The Windsor and Newton paper had burred from the application of water. The paper could not handle anymore, so I blended the new pecil layer with a Dove blender pen



I then added some shadows and the text.
