Erin hasn't started her page...she's busy
Making her Duct tape Bag....She is obsessed with duct tape! In a healthy way!
Here she is busy at work making a pocket book. I am sure she will get to her page before the weekend is done.
I am always interested to see the steps people take to get to a finished piece. So I snapped a few pictures along the way!
First I started with a doodle, that piece of paper on top, next to it is a picture we bought while in BarHarbor. That was my inspiration.
I brought back a lot of info & maps, and even deli paper from a restaurant that had some cool printing on it. People will give you anything if you ask nicely!!! So all ofthat got torn up and put in, oh and a quick sketch of the images.
After I finished painting I stamped the image with cardboard. This is the same technique I used for the background of my blog. I really love doing this, it gives a perfectly imperfect feel, a loose running line.
Andy Warhol used a blotted line technique when he was a graphic designer, and I love the look of his illustrations, a loose, running line that also provides contrast, a bit of snap! I did this in school with a class once and got hooked! Although my technique is different he is my inspiration!
