Maybe it was a little ambitious to take step by step photos of the creation of a page whilst attempting something new! All the way through, until I forgot to take any photos, I was telling myself to just play, just enjoy the mark making, but ended up really not liking what I'd done. I really, really, really love these pages now and can't believe they looked like this at one point!
So here you go, step by step :)
in my large-ish typewriter book, layer of Buff Titanium because I couldn't find the gesso!
patches of Phalo Blue in the bottom third of the pages
black drawing ink applied with a stick!
quite liking it so far, don't know where it's going though
a stripe of blue ink in the top third, then some Sticky Fingers Bluebell ink sprayed above it
darker blue ink splodge on, not liking this, and what on earth
am I going to put in the middle?
a stripe of a yellow ochre type of colour...like how it goes over
the blue spots and you can still see them
I wanted some red highlights on this page, inspired by
Nope, really don't like it, it feels to dark so I'll brayer some white acrylic
paint over it and see what happens
I liked it so much I forgot to take anymore pics until I finished the pages
Brayering pulled off some of the paint so I used some scraps of paper from the table
as collage fodder
(I'd done some free mark making before starting this page aka Jane Davies then
used the same paper to dry off my brushes/brayer/stencils)
I've always loved the scraps of paper under my work, it's where I don't think so
often get surprising results and textures. It's also why I don't use a teflon mat!!!
A bit more drawing ink and hey, I'm happy!!!
