What I have been up to this week.
|Tulips( take two)|
Right! I give in in! I will try again.....
|Last weeks tulip study|
So a different approach this time, collage.... collage made me work quickly and intuitively, no time for complaining or worrying about tone and form.
A background of encyclopedia pages and beautiful mulberry handmade paper with bits of grass embedded in it.
I added some Gelli printed paper to make the leaves. The finished picture shows some paper I made using ferns. I was really pleased with the way the fern prints were absorbed into the tulip leaf shape making a lovely lively texture.
I enjoyed the whole tulip experience I even had time to do a colour exercise with my new inktense pencils! They arrived in the post this week, I am in LOve! They are fabulous, the colours are so vibrant, never tried them before, no idea why but now they are a definite must.
