Pop Art Celebration!

This page was created for the Explore Your Creativity (challenge 10) over on the recently renamed Junk Journals and Mindful Mixed Media Art.  The group has just welcomed its 4000th member so I decided to use that in my piece.  The prompts were Pop Art; Marker pens; Red.  However I also feel that it meets the March prompt on Nina Ribena's Art Journal Prompts and More: Friendship.
I divided a piece of mixed media card (18.5cm x 19.5cm) into 4 then stamped 4000 using the Typography number stamps by Docrafts (Jet Black Archival ink).
I chose four colours of Ecoline pens and coloured a digit and the background diagonally opposite each time.  First using Scarlet.
Next, Ultramarine Deep.
Then Vermillion.
And finally, one of the new colours, Pastel Red.
To add to the pop art effect and strengthen the areas of Pastel Red, I coloured through the Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil (THS006) using a ProMarker in Berry Red.
I then went over all the stamped lines using a black ProMarker.
The addition of a sentiment from the Small Talk sticker book (Tim Holtz idea-ology) finsihed the journal page.
