It's not that we're competitive you understand but when Laura says anyone can find 10 or 15 minutes a day to do something creative you just have to rise to the challenge don't you?
OK so it's only a couple of luggage tags but by Christmas I'll have 25 of these to string along a ribbon kind of like paper bunting! I've used oil pastel with a wash of concentrated watercolour paints and added a few gold dots with a metallic pen.
It takes way less than 10 minutes to paint a load of gesso onto an altered book page.
I'm adding some feather drawings to the Eggs and Nests book I'm altering.
I like the way the brushmarks in the gesso add character to the pencil drawing.
I'm including some birds too. This was meant to be a Jay but sadly looks more like a demented Kookaburra. Ah well, back to the drawing board - more than 10 minutes definitely required for this!!
Bye for now,
