I have been enjoying Milliande's videos of her Seed Journals. Her day 7 inspired this face. I did a face in wet on wet watercolours and walnut ink after adding text with matte medium. I sprayed it too to make the colours blend as they would on their own with no help from me. Then I ripped the face in half and painted a new half responding to side one. Once it dried I went over it with a fine black pen, then I added a bit of highlights with a white oil pastel. Fun! Part of what inspired me was her spontaneity and part was her colour palette.
I am using the Strathmores new Mixed Media Pads, the 400 series. I really like the paper and it is really sturdy and takes a lot of wet media and collage and it is very reasonable. I am a happy customer. :)
Coming up Roses was inspired by Traci Bautista's free workshop through Strathmore. I say inspired because I got so excited that I kept going off on tangents from Traci's instructions. :) The fine lines in her hair are acrylic paint laid down with a pizza cutter. I also finished it off with the Portfolio oil pastels. The are so creamy and smooth.
"Tumbler" is inspired by the above and Traci's Lesson 4. Tumbler also has pizza cutter hair. In the background are stamps and letter stencils. He is also acrlyics finished with oil pastels. I love how saturated the colours are.
Inspired by Carla Sonheim's Picasso Dogs. Tons of fun.
The dog page is a work in progress there will be more added to the page when I'm done.
