The next lesson I tried at Soul Food asked us to start by making a messy page, i.e. making marks with paint and stamps and adding bits of collage etc. in order to make a surface for a detailed painting. You know the idea.
This was the first background I tried making.
Exciting stuff, then I got carried away and forgot to photograph the next processes.
Here's the result.
Not what you'd call a background page.
So I split it up, gave it a little photo-editing and made four cards.
You can never have too many cards.
Eagle eyes will notice I used some of this for the frame on my "Vase" picture here.
I had another go at creating a background.
This was supposed to be soft greens, pinks and oranges.
Hahahahahahaha! Not a background, then.
So I made it into a wrapping paper design.
Pretty good fun.
I got four new cards designs and new wrapping paper.
Maybe not what the class asked for, but a result.
