More backbone

Standard
I love this quote. I decided to use it on the second plastered (joint compound) spread, this one in my Strathmore journal. I did the same thing in this that I did in the Moleskine but I probably could have skipped the tissue as it doesn't really show through; I was much more liberal with the joint compound and sealed it before painting this time so it didn't wear off. I also used a watered down charcoal gray acrylic over all to bring out the texture and a few India and acrylic ink splots for contrast.
 

Tim Holtz Bigz alpha die letters. Love this die and was definitely worth buying (on sale!) but had to shim it ever so slightly in the center–literally, a piece of cardstock taped to the back center did it–or some of the letters wouldn't cut cleanly. Shaded the letters with charcoal–it's the details!
