So I have been working on the second 2 page spread of my altered book. I was searching to get the type of balance I managed to find in the first spread. It took some time to work through. I added a glaze and some additional papers but still hadn’t gotten the effect I wanted. I tried covering the two pages with tracing paper to give it unity, and then painted over it with watercolor. The real breakthrough came when I ripped that layer off after it had dried somewhat! It added an effect that I really liked and I reapplied some of the scraps and liked where it was going. Some areas were too bright and disconnected so I used a crayon to color softly over those areas to meld them into a whole. I think it has definitely progressed from the first iteration.
