Mussel and Prawn Pasta

My entry this time is about mussel and prawn pasta, it is done
by filling will color ink pen and watercolor. The background is
using torn glister paper, actually it changes from yellow to blue
from different view-angles but I can't demonstrate here :p
Anyway, it looks interesting to me!!

Okay, let's back to the recipe:
