Masking Taped Journal Page Experiments

Taped page with Sepia Walnut Ink
I drew in pencil and colored with
Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils.
This is an altered book journal.

Sepia Art Table Buddha

Another taped page stained with Sepia Walnut Ink.
This is the drawing of my art table Buddha. This is my first taped page.
 Experimenting with this in Juliana Coles Quick Draw workshop.
  I think her layered style is akin to patterned style I have.

I've heard people advise to never put masking tape in a journal but I think
that these pages will change your mind. I love the texture and it is especially
nice when the words or illustrations from the altered book show through.
