Rust on the Inside

Inside cover and first page

We will decorate the pages just like would any other journal.  I sketch occasionally, but this journal lends itself to any art techniques.  Since the coffee filter pages are now richly dyed with the rust patina, there is minimal background painting needed.
Foliage and feathers
Above, I played with some of the striations of rust on the left side, adding a die-cut feather, some mica over  a 'thought', and a few sketches.  The hawk on the right is from my own stencil, through which I did a rubbing of alphas.  This could easily have been watercolored, too.
