this was fun

this was soooo fun to do....this is a bib i made for my grand daughter, annie, when she was a baby....she is 10 now.....her sister, piper (3 now) also wore it and informed me the other day that she was to big for it now.....and this is how this piece of art came about...... i took a online class from sue pellitier http://www.suepelletierlaughpaint.com, some time ago and decided to do this with the bib using sue's  technique......... fun fun fun

face3

another face for 29 faces of september....i have sketched another in my altered book.....this time i painted the page with "absorbent grounds" by golden.....i wanted to soften the writing on the page but still be able to use watercolour.....this did the trick.....this is a quick sketch with pen and then colored with watercolour...my time has been very limited for art these days....
