First Monthly Sketch Project

This is my entry for the first Monthly Sketch Project. Between coordinating an Art Show for last week and starting back at homeschooling this week I left too little time for this piece. I did enjoy doing it and very happy the Monthly Sketch Project was set up. Thanks Jennifer.

ATC Entries

These are my entries for the Richmond Art Gallery ATC Show in British Columbia.
The top three are water color,ink and batiking.
The two outside ones I laid a wash of water color and a basic faint image of the mountains and elephant appeared and I went from there. The middle turtle was a sheet of card stock I pressed an ink pad down on a smooched it around. When I looked at it vertically I didn't notice anything but when I turned it I saw the turtle and lightly outlined him with a Sakura pen.
I am entering the top 9 (because that's the limit)
These two here, I had done for the show but some friends really wanted to trade them. Mainly it is because of how they came to be. The one on the left with the green leaves was a piece of water color paper I accidentally dropped a tea bag on. When I picked it up I could see the image of the moth. I added very little to it and just put in the leaves. I liked it so much I deliberately smooched a tea bag and got the other moth on the other card
