This page I repainted probaby 4 times! I just din't like it. It's hard to see but underneath it all I scraped paint through a stencil, which made a cool raised up image. When it dried, I scraped a green color and the sprayed and dripped some colorwash. Yuck! Then I glued on some scraps of paper- still didn't like the colors. So I scraped the whole thing with turquoise- better. I still did not like the drips. So I did some punchnella over it and tried out a new stamp I carved. I'm liking the page now, but haven't decide if I'm done yet.
I started this page with a technique I saw on a blog that encourages doing art with kids(sorry, I can't remember where...) First you put down painters tape in the rough shape of a tree, then paint over the whole page. After it's dry you take off the tape and you then have a white tree! Worked pretty cool! I'm not finished yet, but I added some sponge marks for wonky blossoms as a start.
It's amazing what you can get done even in little bits of time throughout the day. Hope you all have a great day!
