Ok.. My mission for today's featured page was-
Scavenge item 30: Four Squares
Alteration 59: Add music
Alteration 58: Color outside the lines
(yeahhh!!) I knew when I sat down i would need to use my paints. I felt the need to be bright and colorful and use black and white as my accent colors. This is what i came up with..
I covered my page in gesso, force of habit. I like my paint to move, not soak into my paper. Plus my sheets are thin, so it adds a little support to the page. I then cut four squares out of music papers, killing 2 birds with one stone! Booyah! You can see the bars and notes through the paint, I didn't gesso those areas.. Then I took my water soluble pencil and drew squares again around the boxes.. and proceeded to color *OUTSIDE the lines* with the contrasting colors., Then I took a bit of gesso on my finger and added it to the squares.. and brought those outside colors.. back INSIDE the boxes. Under normal circumstances those colors would and could have created brown in some parts, if I wanted it to. Since I didn't want it to happen, that explains why I added gesso and painted over the gessoed areas. I then I got out my stencil.. I decided I wanted windows.. On my squares, which now looked like skyscrapers to me. I stenciled over areas with various colors including the black for shadowing purposes. I then took my Sakura Koi waterbrush and intensified the darkness on my black pencil markings by applying the wet brush to it! Then I used my Unibal Signo white gel pen to add accents on windows, doodled some wording (which reads, create in color <3) and some highlights (over my large lettering) I wrote Create In Color in Black with my Sakura Identi-Pen from the kit!
