On Bee Super Deluxe paper, double dipped my Simply Simon #6 Chisel paint brush into W/N watercolors Transparent Yellow and Alizarin Crimson and wrote my main words in a kind of Bone style lettering. The rest of the song words with a black Zig Writer in Akim style. Added graphite and paper stump shadow.

On Grafix white opaque Craft Plastic applied my alcohol inks (Copic Holiday Blue, Ultramarine and Adirondack Raspberry), dropped in a lot of 99% alcohol and tilted and shifted my paper to get a nice sky effect... When dry added the Adirondack Pitch Black on either sides and moved it around with a palette knife to get a craggy mountain effect.
When dry used a Sharpie fine point to write out the text. The added a couple birds in the sky...

I'm an addict when it comes to postage stamps... I usually buy the newest Canadian stamps when they are issued including the souvenir sheets... I will never use them all in my life time... but I love having the choices when I'm designing an envelope or something. The only stamps I stay away from are SPORTS. ugh.
This binder holds hundreds and hundreds of usable stamps.
I'm using Columbia Mills LBS End Paper, which folds nicely, has a good weight and is sturdy. My folds are 2" making it a 1" loop flap.
I used an unknown black cardstock for the covers. My text and quotes are written with a Nikko G nib and Holbien "Permanent White" gouache.
On the cover: I am an addict
