This is an interesting technique. I placed a plastic stencil under the right page and rubbed the unpainted page with the sides of red, blue & yellow crayons. Then I over-painted with Americana's "Graphite", which is a medium gray paint. I wiped the wet paint with a baby wipe to expose the crayon colors which had resisted the paint. As you can see, the holes in the stencil had resisted being filled in by the crayons, and left bare paper that the paint covered up.
I used white FW acrylic ink and a Nikko nib to write the text.
