Skeleton Keys


#DoodlewashJanuary2021 prompt: Key. Did you know that the Skeleton Key was invented in Ancient Rome and was still in heavy use until after World War II?

This is another page in my Hahnemühle ZigZag book, that I filled with backgrounds using a GelliArts printing plate. This time I used Zebra Sarasa Retractable Clip Gel Pens to create detail without totally obscuring the background.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. The background is absolutely gorgeous and the colors are perfect for an old rusted skeleton key, which is what I see. Thanks for sharing!
