The process: I started with a old stech book from college. I used gesso and giltter to cover the pages.tea-gesso

I then stained the pages with coffee grains, coffee, spray inks, tea, and tea tags.tea-stained

Next I used colored pencil, watercolor, and acrylic paint.tea-book

Fishie, Fishie- Day 5


Ifish-web

 

I belong to a colored pencil FB group and I did this for the FeBruary challenge. It is a mixed media piece. The fish is colored pencil and the background is watercolor.

Colored pencil is a new medium for me and I have a lot to learn with it. I know the only way I can get better to practice, practice, practice.

I hope you like my little fishie!! ūüôā

Change is a coming!


Change can be good or bad, it all depends on how you adapt to it. I decided to give some of my art a new look, change, or different view. What do you think? see more here!
