In this post I’ll be sharing my before pictures (the 4 panels from the page I colored) and the finished set of note cards which I made with said page.

Notice that I used a variety of mediums (some in combination) on the 4 panels from this one page.
Panel 1: Inktense pencils (a light application of water with a paintbrush)
Panel 2: Wax pastels
Panel 3: Oil pastels
Panel 4: Acrylic paint and Inktense pencils (without water)
Here is the set of note cards that I made:
