Paint with the page purple leaving out an oval opening where we will put the image.

Cut some circles out and stick on the top of the page. Outline the oval with a the gold Gelato and blend with your finger.

Color your image and stick in place.

Use a gold pen to outline the circles, add dots to the circles and draw lines down to them.  Outline the image and circle with your charcoal pencil.
