Working with color pencil on vellum is beyond fun. This simple book structure is a perfect way to create, draw, stitch, blend color, ink, collage, and paint on 2 different but compatible surfaces. The combinations of color will harmonize with each other, shimmering through the translucent surfaces. This book structure is an extraordinary multi signature simple bound book that can be easily constructed. You'll learn at least 5 different techniques in this workshop including color pencil techniques on vellum, drawing flora and fauna shapes, color mixing, acrylic painting with abandonment, and book binding to stitch signatures in place. This truly translucent book will entice you to add more pages later on. It's a book that will continue to change and become even more beautiful in time.
