Pine Cones and Hornet's Nest

Here's the backside of the  same bleedthrumanade I posted yesterday.

For those who haven't been following my blog for very long, a bleedthrumanade is what I call it when I use alcohol markers on the front of a page (Copics, Sharpies, Spectrum Noirs, etc) and the color bleeds through to the back.  I color and then I tangle on both sides, using the color as sort of a string.

In other words--Got Lemons? Make lemonade.  Got marker bleedthru?  Make bleedthrumanades!

To see what others are doing in their journals, check out the Rhodia Journal Swap page on Tumblr.
