ID: wk 5 - Bleach - "Bleach Is Wicked"
Size: 10"w x 8"h

On Stillman & Birn Nova Tria Mixed Media 150gsm paper. It has 3 tones (light grey, beige and black). All 3 colors work beautifully with bleach... I've tried a lot of various black papers with bleach and this is my ABSOLUTE favorite. It reacts wonderfully and has such a nice tone to it.

Used a large chisel brush dipped into my bleach and wrote out the letters any which way... spattered a bit of bleach as well. set aside to dry.

The colored areas were edged with Juice Up 0.4 Metallics (pink, blue and green) then colored with Prisma colored pencils in similar tones. Shadowed with a Zig 2way glue pen and black Glitter Ritz.

The rest of the text done also with the Juice Up pen.

ID: Wk 6 - New Tool - Aphorism - Circle Risk Taker
size: 6" sq

On Canson Pro Marker paper and using my circle scissor, penciled in my circle around the text. Painted the floral design. Used a pointed pen and Sumi ink in Uncial style.

I then read the instructions again and realized I was supposed to use a new tool as well... see next image.



ID: wk 6 - New Tool - Aphorism - Colored Risk Taker
size: 8.5"w x 9.5"h

As mentioned above this is the 2nd piece after reading the instructions again. I haven't bought any new tools in I don't know how long except my Juice Up pens... but haven't used my automatic pen very often...

On Canson Pro Marker paper, dipped my pen into walnut ink and wrote the large letters in Uncial. Used the Juice Up 0.4 pens to write the smaller text and color the first stripe of each letter using a different color each time and moving the color around with a damp paint brush.
