All Caught up for now!!
Two for One!!!
DLP & AJJM
Color Safari (exploring inks & paints)
Its water under the bridge
so this didn't go the way i wanted...
here's how it went....
so i got my inspiration...
so i got out those watercolors i bought on sale!!
should have stuck to old reliable crayola!!
used blue tape to make a border....
mistake#2! when i took the tape off it pulled the paper off!!
sketched out picture...
blocked in color....
really wasn't liking the way the paper reacted with the watercolor...
didn't seem to move...
started to build up colors...
after i finished painting i peeled the tape...
and ripped the paper!!!
i couldn't leave it alone so i grabbed my sign black pen and
did some loose drawing...
also added some white sharpie paint marker..
and the quote....
didn't come out the way i thought..
oh well can't have them all!!!
thx for stopping by!!
The colours are lovely and the illustration really is connected to your quote. I like the added touch of your black marker.ReplyDelete
Here is a hint: Before you apply your tape around the border, tap your tape against your shirt or pants to collect some fuzz off of them, this makes the tape less sticky. Pull the tape at a 90 degree angle and go slowly and evenly when pulling it off. You will less likely rip your page.
Thanks for sharing! I so enjoy watercolour paintings!
