experimenting - facing pages

Experimenting with paint in a moleskine (pages about 9" w x 12" h). Using expired credit cards to mush the paint about.  Experiment is the key term here.
I'm loving the way the pages creak when they turn.
At some point, I'll attach "stuff" to the pages.

circle-ish. pencil and oil pastels added.

Viewing through the camera lens -
I can see the mess on the right.
 Perhaps I'll paint over with white.
Or glue something down.

The right page gets the paint, the left gets the leftover scraping.

This kept looking like flowers to me - flowers in need of stems - sooooo...

Stems and leaves from the edge of the expired credit cards.
 I have decided I don't like brushes.
 For now.

Added a bit more darkness (or maybe it's depth) to the flowers.
 And some white to brighten.
