This spread is in an altered book I've been working on since May. I am collecting favourite and fun quotes, adding some stamping, doodling and colour -trying to make the pages look nice, but keeping to one layer so the book doesn't get any thicker than it originally was. The sentiment has been written with a Micron pen, the stamp is from VivaLasVegaStamps, the clock stencil from TCW and everything was coloured with Derwent coloursoft pencils and a white Sharpie. I remember being bothered by the text of the book when I worked on the first couple of pages, but then I started to see the text as lines that help to space the letters for the quote -it works surprisingly well. I had been wondering what to do on the background of this spread. When I saw this post on the Paperartsy blog, I decided to try out a clock stencil, but with coloured pencils. Didn't work very well, but gave me a base I could continue doodling on, and the result is what I was looking for.
