While colourful, it was not what I had seen in my mind. So, of course, that meant I had to
change play with it!
I sketched out three leaves and Painted around their shapes with indigo. You can see the faint texture added by the plastic wrap on the leaves.
I grabbed a white crayon to use as a resist and drew a flower shape, then added some darker paint to make the flower show up. Some leaves were painted beneath the flower.
I then decided to darken inside the three leaves. Look what happened! One of the original wax circles came to life! I guess they weren't lost as I'd thought. Was it because the colour over top wasn't dark enough?
So I decided to try painting over the 'worm' squiggle I thought had disappeared. And look! It showed up, too! Interesting.
So now I have several areas of interesting shapes...the flower and leaves, the double circle squiggles, the indigo leaves with a circle motif, and a worm squiggle. I might just cut these shapes out to make a few cards. What do you think? Or maybe I should switch to inks or acrylics and add more texture, or just play and see? Which would you do?
Thanks for visiting.
