I straightened up my desk yesterday and now I can find neither my extensive collection of backs nor my steel ruler. Ptichka, of course (and rightfully so) does not trust me with her ruler. Who knows where it would end up. So, I have to cut new backs on the sly before gooping them up.
My current chapter is still meandering. I'm feeling quite a bit like a bare tree. All underlying structure and no leaves.
I was going to play around with ink washes in this card but I didn't do so well. Eh. I still like the way the tree looks like a hand-carved stamp.
The background was done in fluid acrylics (of course!) and the tree was "painted" in artist ink.
There's nothing below the fold.
