Day 81 was a lot of fun and so easy to do!
I was working on a large collage piece –
making a background layer –
and rolling the leftover paint onto a couple sketchbook pages.
This is one of those page spreads of brayered on leftover paint.
Done in my Baby Leda Pocket Sketchbook from
Perfect size book for this project.
(You can get this book on Amazon.com but if you
buy it direct from Leda it costs less.)
Then I tangled some kuke and Tennyson.
Reminds me of a picnic with a
bunch of watermelon balls.
Day 82 was tangled in my latest book
It has 378 pre-drawn strings so you don’t have
to worry about creating that part yourself.
I used perfs, crescent moon (the way I draw it)
and a new one I’m developing called Zone.
Wow! This looks psychedelic!
Day 83 was done in my
Hahnemühle Black Book.
It can be purchased here.
The book is great!
All the pages are black; the one issue that causes
with tangling is figuring out what pens to use.
I purchased a set from Jet Pens called
and they are purported to
“stand out incredibly well on black paper.”
The set I purchased had 12 pens.
If you were to count the colors seen in day 83
you would notice there are only 7.
Five of these ‘magic’ pens do not actually
work on black.
Not if you would like to also see them.
But 7 are wonderful.
And the Black Book from Hahnemühle is
perfect for this!
The smooth paper was a charm
to draw on with the 7 magical pens I had.
Enough said about those pens.
I will be reviewing the Black Book before long.
(And I love it!)
The only tangle I used was printemps.
(I’m sure you are surprised with that tangle choice. Hahahaha!)
This doesn’t go with any specific day of the project.
I just like it so far.
This is a large collage piece I’ve been working
on for a couple days now.
Paint a little, glue a little, and wait for it to dry.
But it is in progress and I love it so far!
Building this in my Extra Large Leda Sketchbook.
You know I love these books!
Hope to have this finished in the next day or so
with a step-by-step of how I made it.
Mostly, skip every other step but I’m trying
to remember to take photos.
It’s the weekend!
Yay! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
