Let your hair down
I've been struggling with the black sugar paper pages I put in my journal. It's finding pens, crayons, inks and paints that will cover the blackness successfully.
With this page I used good quality crayons. Here I have used a combination of the student coloured pencils from Specialist Crafts and Derwent crayons. Both have a good coverage and are lovely and soft to use. The top part of the page is an envelope inner which has been marbled lightly marbled, although I feel it hasn't really shown in the image The lettering and swirls were completed using permanent pens.
I think the woman looks a little intense and slightly Fae.
