This are the prompts for week 7 cover up the good stuff and week 8 repeating elements.
I didn't gesso my page, because I have a watercolor moleskine, and I did my first layer with yellow and red watercolors. The I drew a heart with pencil. I didn't use a stencil, so the heart isn't perfect, but I choose for that intentionally.
Then I covered everything except the heart with black gesso. (covering up the good stuff)
With blue and yellow ecoline I worked on another paper, doodling leaves on top to cut out.
Here I was playing with composition of the leaves.
But I decided that I needed another layer under the leaves first. So I scribbled with a white sakura pen "Eat, create, sleep, repeat". And I used a stencil and white acrylics on the left side. Then paste some leaves on top in groups here and there.
I finished the page with some poetry images of birds and butterflies and wrote the same phrase in black on the heart. I need to seal the page, but I always take a picture first, in case I screw up ;)
