Is that you really don't like what you did because you are doing "better" now. So I'm throwing a number of my various "play" pages from Jane's classes. Mostly they are from the "Supplies Me!" where I am learning to use new tools. So of course there is a learning curve. For me a STEEP one! LOL. So here we go - a whirl wind tour!!!
Playing with Sumi ink, which again, doesn't want to dry. Grrrrrr!!!!
She is acrylic, color pencil and some pen paints on a gesso back ground that was covered with acrylic paint. I'm just not use to this surface since I normal paint directly on the paper.
This was a homework exercise for "Supplies Me!" for the section on alcohol markers. I did it in a big journal. This is all about just letting go for me. My comfort zone is single pieces of paper (so I can crunch them up and throw them away if I hate them - and I usually do - I'm trying to break myself of that!). My supplies of choice are pencils, color pencils, and water color. So this is all scary (and good) for me!!
Jane uses distress ink for hair and I tried that here as well. It does work well. I didn't have distress ink (she uses Ranger products) but some Walnut Stainz which I believe is a similar product.
This was straight on Strathmore Mixed Media paper in a journal. Again - scary. But not totally because it is one of the spiral bound ones where I can still easily tear it out ;). But I am resisting. I would have thrown out all of these drawings.
For the next blog I will be showing what I did with pastels. Interesting for certain!!
