|I added a bit of color to the lovely flowers with a colored pencil.|
I was actually so engrossed in getting this sketch on the page that I was almost late for my hair cut appointment. When I explained to my hairdresser that I was walking the streets of Europe with the little yellow man, she was greatly amused.
Later in the day, I spent some time with my Neocolor II crayons and some magazine cuttings to add a bit to the altered book. I am beginning to lighten up a bit and am enjoying this activity more and more. I didn't use gesso on either of these 2 page spreads, but I am finding myself peeling gel medium off my hands even after having washed them. You gotta love messy!
|I see a bit of corner roll on the magazine flowers. I'll need to add a bit of glue.|
|Just getting started with these two and having quite a bit of fun.|
I am driving to my Mom's this morning with Miss P to visit for a few days and attend a memorial service. We will be leaving in about an hour. I think I am packed and ready, but I have to clean out the car a bit in case I end up doing a bit of chauffeuring while I am there. Miss P and I have packed our electronics, a couple of novels, and our sketchbooks along with some pencils, pens and colored pencils. We are hoping to get out and about and do some plein air sketching, something I don't do enough of and that Miss P has never done.
I will try to post while I am gone, but if for some reason I can't I will definitely have lots to share on my return. I'd best get in the shower and get this day started if I am to arrive in the early afternoon.
I hope you are having a great day and that you are finding time for yourself and your creativity.
