ZIA Bookmark part 2

Although there is no Diva Challenge this week, I am adding to the bookmark I made and shared last week. I decided that something needed to be done to the white back of the bookmark. I went with Steps. You may remember that I played with steps a few weeks ago. Lauren saw it and said she liked it, so I thought I’d used that tangle on the back.

Well, when I finished I knew I didn’t want to add anything more but it needed something else. So, I blackened the background. Of course, first I put an aura around the steps. Then I proceeded to color in the background. I ran into another problem. The microns I’ve been using have been used for a long time. I store them on their side in a bin and that seems to have extended their life. But as I colored in the background I started feeling like I was running out of ink. It got sketchier and scratchier as I filled it in. I switched from 08 to another 08 I had, then to an 05 and even an 03. I finally had to pull out the 08 from the new set I’ve had sitting around, waiting to be used. ;) By the time I finally finished the background, even that 08 was feeling a bit scratchy. Ugh! If I am going to do much blackening, I’m going to have to get some other kind of pen/marker.

When I finished it all, Mike said it needed something else, that there was too much black. So I put one henna drum on the biggest blackened area. I think it works.

As a reminder, here is the other side.

DC#248 ~ Lifeofjoy.meWell, that’s it for today. I want to thank Jean and Lily for taking the time to comment last week. Thanks also to those two that clicked the heart icon.

Until next time, God bless, and Merry Christmas,
