Quarantine Quickie #33 & #34: Kettle of Fish / Muscle Man


More tag journal fun and a couple more pages of my Quarantine Quickies following the prompts on Mission Inspiration.  My book ring is getting full and I will have to start a second one soon.
Cover a #8 manilla tag with a piece of inky copy paper, seal with matte medium, dry and trim the excess.
Pencil in a kettle spout in the top left corner.
Add the Clarity tropical fish in Hickory Smoke archival ink.
Go over the pencil with a black Pitt Artist pen and colour the spout using Faber-Castell big brush markers, blended out with a Pergamano blending pen and nib. Erase the pencil once dry.
Colour the fish in the same manner.
Add shading below the fish and spout with the Caput Mortuum big brush marker, blended out with a finger.
To finish, add the prompt with a black fine liner pen.
Cover a #8 manilla tag with a different section of the same piece of inky copy paper, seal with matte medium, dry and trim the excess.
Stamp the boy with the outstretched arms from Wee Folk 1 by Clarity in Black Soot archival ink.
Add one of the Wee Gymnasts balancing on his hand in the same ink.
Add a second Wee Gymnast, balancing on the first, in the same way.
Add the man and child from Wee Folk 2 in Black Soot also.
Add shading below the characters with the Caput Mortuum big brush marker, blended out with a finger.
To finish, add the prompt with a black fine liner pen.
