Using Lettering as a Layer

Tangled stacks and lettering.

It just needs to be a layer in and of itself.

That’s all it takes.

Not superimposed over the top of what you tangled,

but a layer all by itself.

Tangled stacks with lettering.

Now if we could just get everyone to understand that.


This piece was drawn on scrapbook paper.

All I used was a black Sharpie fine point,

a little graphite for shading,

and a white gelly roll pen for highlights.

  1. I like the way you're clarifying the guideline here – your gelly roll (would you believe autocorrect inserted 'belly') white highlights work superbly with this. I particularly like the way the red, white & black works together with that little odd bit of purple. Gives me an idea for picking paper to tangle too – not too many colours or too busy. Paula (PEP)

  2. I have a ton of scrapbook paper that's been sitting around for years. I figured this might be a good use of it 🙂
