Altered Book: red.black rev 2.0

Another finished spread in the altered kids' book project. The other day, I added a hand lettered quote to Messy Pinks so click over to see what is up with this book.

To figure out how to add words, I looked at it from a distance and turned it upside down, and the fact that it was plaid faded away to a simple grid of colored squares. Sometimes when you create a page, you remember how you created it when you look at it, and it influences the shapes and colors you see. In the squares could go doodles or little images or letters.

I love this white Gelly Roll. Crisp white lines on a flat acrylic background or plain paper. I did a tutorial on creating this red and black plaid background and a green and blue plaid background using a brayer so let me know if you try this technique.
