This was a little something that I sent to B at Sweetlimes for our February swap. We are now into our second year of monthly swaps... Blue Scarf is on 11x15cm cardboard
I started using pages from a book that I had lying around and now I can't stop. These are three of nine that I have done so far. Girl about Town is on a 20x20cm canvas. I'm about to tackle a 100x100cm canvas. The theme will be the same...lots and lots of houses. I must be mad... wooooo, don't all shout at once :)
Red popped out of the blue... Here's how I do them. 1. I prepare my background with gesso. 2. I paint my canvas one colour then with a piece of cardboard I scrape another colour over the top. 3. I stick bits of pages down with clear gesso. Then finally I colour in with ink, watercolour, pencils or pastels... et voila! a mini obsession going on... I'm sharing this with you and everyone over at Sunday Sketches
Please let me know if you use my Here's How...I would love to see what you come up with... Ta Ra for now...
