First up, a couple of my index cards for ICAD--I played with a glue resist tutorial someone shared online (please don't ask who or where...it would take me forever to track them down again! I have entirely too much happening right here!) Gessoed a card, whipped on a quick coating of some pretty citron-ish-y green acrylic (Summer of Color, um, colors for the week are Citron and Turquoise---fyi...) Let that dry (this was all happening on the super humid rainy day earlier this week when NOTHING wanted to dry, so that's how I ended up playing with so many different things all at once) then squibbled on (yes, squibbled--it's a highly technical artistic term used, well, primarily by, um, me) some glue--good old Elmer's,and waited for THAT to dry...what a day...Then, I washed it with some turquoise-y watercolor and for the life of me, I can't help myself but want to sprinkle salt on all my watercolors because it does the coolest effects--that and rubbing alcohol...seriously, try it! Amazing! But I think in this instance I could've, should've left well enough alone. Eh...leave me to my own devices and things are bound to get a little out of hand...So here's how it finally turned out:
I went back over some of the spots with a little watercolor pencil just to deepen the shady bits. Hey, for an experiment, it's still pretty cool. Oh, and the card on the bottom is another Summer of Color, Citron/Turquoise ICAD featuring a little Pokeleaf in watercolor pencil.
Then, I got a little grid seed play happy again, and zipped this zentangley card up today, in, what else? Citron/Turquoise! Lovin' this Summer of Color!
So, thanks as always for stopping by and I hope you'll come join us in all this Paint Party Summer of Color ICAD Diva fun!! Have a great weekend!!
