"Flight of Fancy"

Each December I have my second year and advanced students complete pieces in ink. I demonstrate various ink techniques and speciality pens by creating and finishing a piece with them. When finished, these pieces are then reproduced on adhesive labels as personal bookplates for family, friends and coworkers. "Flight of Fancy" was born from some gel medium transfer exploration where I created and layered transparent images in my altered books. When I stumbled on the face over the butterfly I decided to use that image created using stippling. The flourishes in the background were inspired by some stamps I discovered and the bees just seemed to show up. I then journaled my idea of the theme.
