More Challenge work!



I finally was able to photograph and upload some more work based on Challenge #44.

The first one is a page I had painted and "embellished" previously. I had used a paint that had a gritty texture to it, so when I scraped over it with the card, it removed that "grit" from the surface. It's impossible to tell in the pic, but it created a fabulous suede-y texture - so incredibly tactile - I love it!!

The second one is cool, minty greens that I then scraped over with white & wiped off most of it - I wanted a wash, or like a filter, not a "layer."

I can't wait to see what Michelle plans for us to do to these next!!!

  9. Very cool! Yeah, sometimes the photos just don't show the details. I like the second one in terms of vibrance with color though...it pops!
