Funnily enough we've taken a class with Kate together before!
Chris' page started with reds and greens. I decided to go for browns and greens, but discovered that Mushroom Adirondack spray is nearer a grey when sprayed over gesso!
I didn't have any acrylic ink to hand so used a couple of pipettes to add inky circles with ink taken from my Adirondack spray bottles.
Chris used her Neocolour water soluble crayons to add her circles. Much more subtle!
I had been saying that I was resisting the current journal trend of painting faces (actually, I don't have to resist hard as faces aren't really 'my thing') but looking at my 'blobs' they seemed to be crying out for facial features. Sue's funny bird doodles came to mind, as did Dr Seuss and Carla Sonheim's imaginary creatures!!!
I intended to make a couple of the 'blobs' into flowers, but forgot - or maybe they just didn't want to be flowers!!
The blob at the base of the 'elephant' looked so like a little snail without a shell I just had to doodle him in, despite it looking a bit odd, but then, the whole page is odd!
I just added eyes to each blob and went from there!
"Be who you are"
EDIT: Chris has blogged her page so head on over to her blog HERE to see how differently the pages turned out!
