Jennie’s Book Challenge September 15, 2014


Work with book pages? Challenge accepted! This is an easy challenge Jennie as I LOVE working with book pages! IMG_1182

This Roster tag features a technique I developed called Subtractive Stamping. It uses book pages that have been scanned and printed (actual book pages are too delicate to use). The images are stamped on very lightly, then erased with the Colored Pencil Eraser  to remove the print. You then stamp again with black ink and color with the Irojiten Colored Pencils.

It’s all explained in my new book, Pencil Magic, hot off the press from Design Originals, Fox Chapel Publishing! It’s just one of the many different graphite and colored pencil techniques I share. This book is excellent for beginners, as well as experienced artists, with many new techniques for you to try.

The subtractive stamping technique works with other ephemera such as vintage journal pages, documents and music sheets! This bird card is done with a scanned and printed Italian document from 1836.
