Working On Junk Mail Book







Posted by Picasa
(Picasa is giving me lots of trouble these days , very frustrating.) My sister and i are taking Carla Sonheim's fun class "Junk Mail Artist Book" and in spite of my very hectic life right now i have been able to finish the pages and bind them (the easiest way possible) into this book. Now onto the drawing part The junk mail were first heavily gessoed then several coats of watercolors were applied followed by a slight buffing.....to be followed

Oh là là c'est magnifique! Quelles belles couleurs, quelle belle texture! Terre et mer : terre, écorces d'arbres, sable, et le bleu de la méditerranée... J'attends la suite avec impatience! Es-tu sûre qu'il faille y faire des dessins? C'est déjà tellement beau comme ça!! Gremelgremelgremel...
