song for the evening

sketchbook project - stormy weather

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.
