This is one of my favorite backgrounds. I will be sure and use it again in a larger piece. Naturally, I forgot to photograph it before I drew on top. I am finding more and more that I have to take action immediately or the thought is gone and may never return. It is a help with my procrastination tendencies but not always convenient.
This background is various washi papers glued down with some torn Tyvek thrown in for good measure. I painted the papers after they dried then did the ink drawing on top with my Lizard's Lick #4 from Cheap Joe.
I sent the book off into cyber space to be printed. I hope the images bleed out to the edge as that is how I wanted it. I am not sure that is how it will turn out. There is a feature while you are creating the book that shows you what will get cut off so I sized each image to allow for that. The preview of the book shows a white border around each image, which is not what I wanted. I'll have to wait and see if I need to make any adjustments for future copies. I plan to add some photos of the event in future copies but I couldn't wait to see a finished copy of the book. Impatient as always!
