This is the first page in a art book, I am going to alter. This face is coloured with copic marker, I’ve had for 6 months and hardly used. I know I have a lot to learn about copic markers, but that is half the fun. The first layer was cheap gesso, which is a little too plasticy, than a stencil with ink and then I just went ahead and sketched and coloured the face. I am surprised the markers went as well as they did over the gesso. And they didn’t bleed through to the other side which was great. They are a bit too streaky though, but if I add more layers and some coloured pencils that might help.
Can’t wait till I have a book that’s fat and bursting, with fun.
I joined Teesha Moores, Artrosnauts club and am exploring this form of collage.
The images are from the collage sheets that are included in the club.
I don’t seem to know what style I want to collage, because I like the style below to.
Anyway I can just keep playing and maybe my own style will emerge…somewhere between the two.
I would love to add more meaning to my pages, and as I’m showing I have lots of incomplete pages that need words.
And some pretty roses, because I found them at Woolworth’s for $5, today.
Even though they aren’t perfect they are still beautiful!!!

I love all photos, and less perfect the better!
I think perfection is waaay over-rated..lol..and an ironic thing is that I just completed an ATC that has a word plate that reads “embrace imperfection”. You did a wonderful job!
