Today I did this spread in my "Tall Journal" that I started awhile back. I actually cut the stencil out of the Vitruvian Man for another project I am working on but decided to test it out in this journal first.
It's rather hard to tell, but I used a black glaze pen that gave the text written on the black background a raised somewhat shiny finish. It's difficult to capture in a photograph, but it adds a very nice yet subtle effect to the pages. Below is a photo of the pages with just the background before I started stenciling and writing on them.
