Skinny Book - M is for Melancholic



Our challenge for the letter M page was to create texture.
Remember that my book´s theme is "In the Mood", so I´ve decided to illustrate the melancholic mood.
I have used gesso to make my textured background: the vault remnants were stamped with gesso, and the M was made by filling a metal stencil with gesso. Then I have used black ink to accentuate the texture.
