these are wonderful, out of curiosity what mediums (sp?) do you use?
I use a variety:
the top spread uses
a background of acrylic and colored pencil, gesso to raise up the lettering, acrylic on top of that and then a layer of matte medium mixed with black for color on the background watercolor crayons and colored pencil for the "glow" around the lettering
next up

collage, gesso and a sharpie, colored pencil, glazes to create layers of color, and a page from an old book that a crazy guy tossed int eh trash at work ( if you can see the larger images on flickr you can read the entry)

acrylic paint, colored pencil and water soluble crayons stamp pad ink

playing card page:
card/collage (I used these card as a kid- so they are about... 20 years old) acrylic, gesso, matte medium

last 2 pages are collage, colored pencil and matte medium. literally the garbage from several varieties of tea I sampled while at teh regional offices of my job. Green breeze is okay tumeric not so great and Roxy Rolles beer was had at home and damn tasty stuff.
