I sprayed some dylusion ink onto card in various colours and dried it. Some random stamping was added using distress ink. Next some large drops of water were allowed to drop on the ink and were then dried. From this point on, I used a white gel pen and my trusty sewing machine to doodle away and create my calendar page. Do I like it? At first, no. Now I've played with it, photographed it and just lived with it, I think it's grown on me so I decided not to redo it, which was the original plan!
Here's my calendar page - get your sunglasses on people before you view:
|The colours are bright and bold and I'm pleased that some areas show a little more yellow than others.
|I started by drawing a flower around each water drop mark. They are roughly the same shape but are in a variety of sizes.
|Next I bleached out some of the colour from each flower using a waterbrush. A second run with the white gel pen was then needed to make it stand out.
