not perfect…

_DSC0102This 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!!!
