Thank you! Everyone is so kind and creative. A fellow board member, Haggie, introduced me to ATCs a couple of months ago, so I'm still pretty new but I'm blown away by everything I see here. It's inspiring.
Hiya T! I glued some inexpensive heavy weight drawing paper (supposedly suitable for pens, charcoal, pastels and watercolor) on a playing card.
I uses watercolor, colored pencils and just laid down color in blobs or streaks. Then I used a brush and water to blend, work etc. It doesn't blend particularily well but some. I'm just beginning to use paints or paintlike mediums. I've always used chalks and pens.
After they dried, I looked at them to see what I could see. In the one above I "saw" a landscape and used some pencils and chalk to bring it out.
