Genevieve has a new book out
she has outdone herself with this one!
This is Genevieve's second book in a series
of colorful backgrounds all ready for you
to tangle and draw on.
And since Genevieve loves me -
she sent me a copy to preview and play with!
Genevieve's page for ordering.
I must apologize right now -
I didn't realize my lighting was bad where I was drawing.
Some of these photos show the true color
some are just horrible looking.
The color in the picture right above here is true.
In the thumbnail it is first row, second photo.
I was trying to think of other art tools
we could incorporate -
other than strictly tangling.
Of course this book was made to be tangled in -
but there are other ways to use it as well.
So I pulled out a brand new stencil I hadn't used yet
and placed it in the binding of the book.
Here are my supplies.
I chose three colors of Tim Holtz' distress inks.
I began by pouncing one of the colors through
various leaves on the page . . .
. . . then a second color . . .
. . . then a third.
Looks like a big, whopping mess of ink,
(And here is where the bad lighting starts to show up.
Sorry, Genevieve. I didn't notice until this morning.
Too late to fix it.)
With much apologies to Genevieve for the messed up color,
here is what I have after I lift away the stencil.
A wave of beautiful leaves across what should
be a beautiful fall colored page of orange.
Now it is as simple as pick a leaf and tangle it.
I had no bleed through with my inks,
absolutely none at all.
I realize some will want to use alcohol markers -
those WILL bleed through.
Stay with gel pens, any pen you would usually
tangle with should be fine.
And just have fun.
Just keep working, adding one leaf at a time.
