After four solid days of admin, creating, printing, typing, packaging etc of my art and prints for the new store display... I took time last night to create this page.
I started with 2 scrappy bits of old pattern paper, and a half
painted page as I was going over the top of an experiment of materials
page. Then without any planning I more or less did the following:
put down a splodge of black gesso, becuase it is more fluid than I am
used to I had extra, so I scumbled it over the rest of the spread;
watercolour pencils ( Inktense), and crayons (Neocolour II), chalk pen,
and ink with stamps. The lacey pattern was created using the saved
backing paper from some black lacey paper tape I used in the packaging
of my prints, and a black ink stamp. I like the effect it created, and I
always use both sides! The bold stamps to create HARD - I used the
reverse side as well - one side with the silver letters, then
overstamped using the squared outline side in black.
Playing Hard? To me, at the moment - giving it my all, not worrying
about the mess, finding the joy each moment, validating the creativity
in many different areas of my life!
How about you?
