In joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday I'm sharing another lesson for the online Draw Your Awesome Life Class (badge on sidebar).
Pages with the water coloring done. It was not easy getting the same effect as the actual mug but I found that by doing wet on wet the colors pooled and flowed much better.
I've been using up my printed deli papers and was more than ready to make more so last week when I ended up with free hours I got everything set up and out in my art room and the printing began!
This last photo shows some prints, and some papers where I just wiped off my brayer with. Here I decided to try using Strathmore Rough Newsprint Paper (14" x 17" sheets) . I cut some sheets into 4 equal size papers. I do like this paper because sometimes you really want a thin, easy paper to work with in collage.
In my next post for Friday (as long as nothing else comes up unexpectedly this week again) I will share a technique I discovered (by experimenting) for using one gelli plate -rather than buying the different ones available. Much as I love this product , the $$$ adds up and you really don't need every shape and size available :) Hope to see you back then!
