Those pages look great, Betsy. Do you have more close-up photos?

Thanks for organizing, Monnie!

Sorry, I got confused about who was sending and who was receiving!

No worries Wulf!  Here are the pages.  I attempted several times to give it the official raised stained glass look with liquid leading, colored glue,  and puff paint but none of those worked! I ended up using a thick sharpie and then my watercolor markers on the vellum. I then used water and a brush/dabbing cloth to swirl the Goddess page.  I didn't like how the vellum wrinkled when drying so I didn't use water on the other two.  Anyone else ever attempt the stained glass thing on something other than glass?

Vellum is SO miserable to work with! Anything water-based will make it wrinkle and curl instantly. Solvent-based markers (like Sharpies) are much better, but it's hard to be very subtle with them. I haven't tried it, but I'll bet you could make the vellum behave better if you securely taped it down to a board first, like you do with watercolour paper, and let it dry completely before freeing it. Another thing that does work - a bit at least - is to dampen the other side of the vellum after you're finished and it's all curled and wrinkly. This causes it to curl in the other direction, and it sort of evens out. If you then press it hard under a weight while it's damp, it'll mostly flatten.

Is it really worth it, I wonder? Yes it is, because in spite of the vellum issues, those pages have a lovely look!
