Good morning, it's Sunday and that means another Sunday Sketch day over at *Blue Chair Diary*
Iam sharing a sketch I made some time back after a bad dream - about a spider! The astonishing thing in the dream, was that I was not frightened of spiders as I am in real life, but could stand and admire it. In my dream I wanted to pick a rose. As I stretched out my hand, it got trapped in a big spider's web, complete with spider, and I found it so pretty, that I forgot about the rose, which crumbled and fell to the ground. In real life I would have run a mile to get away from the spider!
Yesterday I spent the day messing with paints again. On Friday while i was tidying up I discovered some notebooks that I had bouhgt to alter, so I did just that.
I used the Five S technique again - splodge, smudge, smear, spray and scratch, and as usual, it was fun slapping paint on and just playing about. After the painting part was done, I heat dried it with my heat gun. This is also a real fun thing. The heat makes the paint bubble and boil and then the bubbles burst (sounds like we're getting to the B technique now!) forming little craters, which show the colour underneath. The thicker the paint, the bigger the bubbles! And when it is dry, it has a completely different feel to it, sort of rubbery. I do this over the kitchen sink, so that I have water at hand in case an accident happens, and I am not sure if the paint fumes aren't addling my remaining grey cells, but what the heck - no risk, no fun, and just now I NEED some fun.
So after all that waffling about nothing, here they are:
These are 2 small flip notebooks. I painted onto card, which I then glued onto the original cover.
These spiral bound notebooks are a bit larger, and as they have hard covers,I painted both front and back.
Okay, that was it for today. Hope you all have a great Sunday. Take care, and thanks for visiting!
