It's that time again, another circle journal done and sent off to the next person. This time I was working in JACKIES book. So after searching for things she light like and deciding on colours that would appeal, I came up with a Tiger....I just didn't know how to get it onto the page, and ended up staring at a blank page for a couple weeks..
Eventually I got started.. I used water based inks to block in areas and shapes..
I then added stencilling and some modelling paste for texture...
Next I blocked in the stronger colours for the tiger...
I finished the tiger..
I then drew some tropical leaves onto patterned paper, then painted over them, and spray acrylic ink over them. I stuck part f the leaves down, and left the ends free..
I then wrote the quote onto black card and sanded the edges to fluff them up..
the finished page..
this is the poem I wrote out on the back of the accompanying tag..
