I've been busily making mini albums and wanted a break.
Wanted to do something carefree and colorful!
Ran across a blog that had a challenge that played a music video.
The song was about being free to be you.
The lady I drew is carefree and being free.
The background started with a piece of water color paper.
I cut some circle out of a file folder and then used it as a stencil to apply gesso in random areas.
Then I added my inks. All Ranger inks-spritzing water as I went to blend them. The areas where the gesso is remain lighter-I love it!
I then sketched in the lady and colored her with pencils.
Printed my statement and added it with gel medium. Outlined the words.
FREE TO BE ME!
