Garlic and Joey


I’ve been playing with this shape a lot lately.

(I’m so cold I’m having trouble typing.

Back space, correct, go forward, repeat.)

Playing with different ways to fill this shape –

that totally looks like a bulb of garlic to me,

for some reason.

That background is a 5″ x 7″ pull from a gelli plate.

Joey’s Challenge this week was called

The Polka Dot Tangle.

Randomly drawn circles,

each filled with a different tangle.

It’s really good practice for quick tangles.

For this 5″ x 7″ piece, I used my new

Prima Color Bloom Spray Mists.

I’ve used them before and my pens worked great over the color, but for some reason this time

my pens did not work so great.

I used a sharpie fine point and had

trouble filling in the dark areas.

I tried shading, but the color wouldn’t hold

the graphite. So. Here it is.

Unshaded but that’s ok.

To participate in Joey’s Challenge,

just go here and check it out.
