I tried to use some of the techniques I learned in Carla Sonheim’s class. I don’t really like how it turned out so I probably won’t try this again….at least on a bigger piece. I started with a paper collage base…gesso over that, and next, two layers of watercolors. I used another layer of gesso and colored markers in certain areas. I used a soft charcoal pencil to do some shading but I need to get some vine charcoal that Carla suggests using.
I found out about Elizabeth at Lost Coast Post when taking “Full Tilt Boogie” workshop. She has a some great journal pages….definitely worth a look. She did two mixed media works on canvas that are part of “out of the journal’ challenge. Below those posts are her “boogie” journal pages.
