Documented Life Project
October Theme - Translucent Papers
Week 43 Art Challenge - Glassine
Week 43 Journal Prompt - Windows of My Mind
Ok, so I may or may not be ever so slightly obsessed with
The Day of the Dead sugar skulls at the moment...!
I had a few problems with this week's DLP prompts -
firstly, I have no glassine and don't intend to get some
for this one prompt. Also, I am pretty much all
tissue paper/vellum'd out, so didn't want to use them
instead. So I decided to take the prompts quite loosely
and had fun with these pages instead.
The background is wax crayon, over which I painted
black ink. Once dry, I scratched out the skull
and lettering to reveal the colours beneath.
I know, you did this at school, right?
Well, believe me, it's great fun to do as an adult too :)
