Merry Christmas to Everyone!
I am trying to draw some more, but it's still not pretty.
The red sploch on the bottom left is supposed to be a poinsetta. The green splat on the right is supposed to be a palm leaf, alluding to plants in Jesus' home country.
Look at the first S in the word "Christmas". I didn't do it on purpose, but it looks like a beginning of network of veins.
I messed up at the top center and tried to fix it. At least the design is interesting.
This was an experiment in doing this that I am not too great at doing. Drawing is not one of my gifts, unfortunately, but I love to take colors and see what happens.
The above is an example of altered books. The book that I got is an old one that was ready to be tossed. I put gesso (diluted with water to make it transparent) to strenghten the brittle pages, painted it yellow with watercolors, so that the original writing is seen.
I also bought some new painting sets called Colour Shapers, size 0, soft tips. That's how I painted the mishaped plants and letters and cross.
I am going to try something else next year. I got on the website and saw other examples on how to use these neat painting sets.
Plus, they were cleaned very easily.
