Life Book 2015 - First Exercise of the Year...a Warm-Up


I'm not used to working in mixed media, so this first effort with it using Life Book guidance isn't as pleasing as I would have hoped.  But it is a lesson that anything worth doing well -- takes time to learn.

For this piece, there were challenges with the watercolor paper peeling because of being worked too much too wet, use of too much gesso in the layering process, and some papers didn't fully adhere.

What I did like included using some of my stamps (which have been stowed for years) and using Caran D'ache water-soluble crayons.

Now...on to do our next assignment!
