I've decided to incorporate various rain related song lyrics into some of my pages. Here is the latest - "stormy weather"
First I gessoed the page, then played around with some metallic watercolors. After I had added the lamp black, I was unhappy with the heaviness of the color, so I lifted some of it off with a paper towel. The result was a lovely happy accident - the stippling pattern in the center of the page.
The song lyrics were stamped with a regular ink pad, then embossed with clear powder, giving the letters a shiny, raised appearance which may not be evident in the scan below.
