From My Sketchbook

I've posted a lot of mixed media stuff but I love to sketch and watercolor as much as mixed media. Here are the last pages from my sketchbook. All done in May and June 2015.

The Documented Life Project - Week 19 to Week 22

Although I had not posted the last few weeks I was very busy creating my pages for the Documented Life Project. The May theme was: Texture. Here are all my pages of May - on May 19 I posted the first May page here.

It was my first try with modeling Paste. I started with a page from a moon atlas and worked with a stencil to bring the modeling paste on it. As you can see I worked it over and over - at least all the moon was covert!

Week 21: "Cheesecloth's" was the challenge. I had none so I used absorbent gauze to create the texture. I wanted to make wings from an angel.

The last May challenge was: "Textured Paper - I'm So Not Feeling It!"
I'm not very happy with my colors. I used different textured papers, pages from different old books and used tea bags to get texture on my page.
