I painted a pink page in my sketchbook and added a heart and a little house.
Millicent has been wandering around in the darkness of space for a while and she thinks she has finally found home.
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
At another great challenge site, the team at "Try it on Tuesday" is asking us to "Go Green or Recycle it".
I had a lot of fun with recycling on this one.
While I was splishing and sploshing in my studio, Mr. E. was in his studio next door making delicate paintings with a number 000 paintbrush. His test paint patches are carefully cut squares about 3 inches square. My test patch paper is often whatever is nearest.
This is what Mr. E's test papers look like.
I went next door to see what was going on and found some rather nice paint sample squares and carried one away to play with.
You will have to use your imagination as I got too excited and didn't take any progress photos, not even one of the original square.
However Mr. E. made me a copy and this is roughly how the original looked before I started playing with it.
Here is what I did with it very quickly using watercolours, metallic pencils and collaged painted paper glued on at the bottom.
Then I started to change it with Photo-editing and that's when it began to get exciting.
I really love the way Photo-editing can produce strange and beautiful colours
and produce different colourways.
Here is Sapphire showing off some of the new card designs.
She would also like you to admire her off-the-shoulder organza shawl.
I hope you enjoyed looking at these experiments.
See you soon!
