Even though I packed a full bag of craft supplies for my week away, I didn't do much more than paint with the kids and doodle in my sketchbook. As soon as I got home though, I was itching to sit down at my desk and create.
I have two major sources of inspiration right now:
- our collaborative sketchbook project winged its way back to my desk this week (you can see Angie's update HERE)
- loads of "started" pages in my sketchbooks and altered Amber book - while painting the kids (and with the kids), I used up all the leftover paint on sketchbook pages. This provides a colourful background and starting point for my pages.
The left side was covered in a gradient of magenta and purple (from Jaden's bathing suit) while the right side was filled mostly with a pale blue and a bit of yellow (from the water). Here are some closer shots:
I liked the random blobs of India yellow on the right side, so I kept things simple, highlighting and doodling some words that show through the yellow bit.
I tackled the left side next, sticking with white, grey and blue collage elements and tying everything together with scalloped edges.
