I'm trying to just let it flow, be spontaneous, spill my impulses, and all the other things the books tell you to do. Just get in there and make art!!!
So that's what I was doing. Pretty soon I had a
I used some glittery sticker letters for Dance A Jig, plus some gel pen and marker work. I bet the guy in the blue oxford shirt from the Xerox ad never expected to end up as a cross dressing, half cat, go-go dancer.
For Once Upon A Time, I added sequins to the crown, plus some more gel pen doodles, which ran when I coated the collages with Gloss Medium and Varnish.
I really need to test every marking device I have against that stuff and keep a list. I love the finish it gives but I'm tired of wrecking things I've made by smearing the ink. Or maybe spray everything with a fixative, and then varnish it?
Anyway, these are totally goofy and make me smile so I'm going to mail them off to friends and hope they get a grin out of them too.
How could they not, right?
