The Documented Life: Week 36

Week 36 – Black & White

I decided that the spread for this week would be entirely black & white even the pictures.  First I gessoed the pages and then painted them black with acrylic paint.  I dipped a finger in the gesso then sloppily ran it along the edges of the pages.  I created the flowers on label paper using a Sharpie and a Sakura Identi-pen and then placed buttons in the middle of each flower.  I also used smaller buttons to create little flying bugs.  I converted the pictures to black & white and then did all the writing with a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen.  The stems and the photo border were created using a Faber-Castell Pitt Big Brush White Pen.
