One of my art teachers back in college had a theory, that went something like this. If you can take one piece of art and make it do different things, than you have done a good thing. For instance, he painted a picture of people in a dance hall for a particular customer. That picture copy was later purchased for use on a telephone book cover. And then copied for a restaurant menu. One piece, three fab uses.
I am still playing with inking/stencils and various things on jouranl pages. I created this for my funky little book.
PS...these are on my Etsy if you are interested.
