The book has a soft cover that opens almost perfectly flat so you can draw right up to that inside edge.
It measures 8.5″ x 11″ and has 40 full-color backgrounds.
The pages are printed just on one side. I didn’t have any trouble at all with bleed-through, but I would recommend placing a sheet of cardstock or thick paper behind your working page just in case.
Above you see a page of thumbnails showing
you what some of the pages look like,
Genevieve even included 8 of
my backgrounds in the book!
if you are a fan of crazy color and lots of it – this is the book for you!

Above you see the first page I worked on.
I did some basic tangling with a Sharpie fine point
and a Pitt Artist Pen but wanted to add a little something different.
So I grabbed a stencil, an ink dabber or pouncer, and a StazOn ink pad. Those black bricks you see were pounced on using the dabber and ink through the stencil.
NO BLEED THROUGH.
I also used a gray pitt pen, a graphite pencil,
and colored pencils for shading.
Awesome sauce!!! Worked like a charm!
I moved on to this page next.
You can see it in its untangled form
in the thumbnail shot above –
second row, second picture.
What drew me to this page was the divided
sections. They look like bits of torn wrapping
paper tossed here and there –
waiting to be tangled.
I worked on a few sections and left
about half of it untangled –
so you could see what i did.
I simply outlined a section, then filled it with a tangle.
No rocket science here.
And you will end up with a beautiful
fall colored page of leaves
that you can enjoy any time of year!
this photo here is pretty true to color.
I have not completed the page,
so you could start getting some ideas of
your own of where you could take this page
Genevieve, thank you for letting me play
with your new book.
It is wonderful, beautiful, and fun!
I had a great time trying out some
additional art supplies.
I expect my black pens and my colored pencils
will be my go-to’s for this book
but the stencils and inks were fun, too!
So, now it’s your turn!
