journal challenge day 5

October 2, 2011

first self portrait ever. had a little help from photoshop but i think it looks pretty cool. there isn’t a lot of color on these pages but i kind of like it. it makes the lines really stand out.

materials used: vintage papers, washi tape, computer print-outs, watercolors, gesso, india ink, acrylic ink, pilot pen, distress inks, found papers, adirondack color wash spray inks.

    I love how this came out (I love all of your work, let’s be honest!) but I’m totally curious now that you said it’s much more simple than it looks. Will you tell us your secret method?:)

    Oh, totally understandable! I can respect that (and would likely take that e-course)!

    thanks for getting back to me!
