Playing around with book art!  In the top photo I used pearlesent inks by Daler and Rowney.  The bottom photo I used some pastel pencils.  The pastels look particularly nice.  I had to draw the flowers with pen first.  You know me...gotta keep it tight! Ha!

Oh I love your book-artwork! The blue flowers are enchanting as well as the beautiful branches! Recently I have also started to paint and to draw into an old book. I call it my messy journal ;) It's so much fun :)
