I have been playing around with some previously screen printed sketchbook pages. The first couple I added watercolor backgrounds.
This screen was one that Louise made up for deconstructed screen printing. She used a hairy yarn and it gave an interesting result.
This one I added some patterns with colored pencils. I haven’t used colored pencils all that much and I’m usually not happy with the result.
I figured out that the problem was I just needed to add at least two layers of colored pencil over white. The page on the right has only one layer but the page on the left had a different blue colored over the same blue used on the right. I like that result much better. It completely covers the white of the sketch page.
So that’s how I did these last three page spreads. So I have been playing with coloring books this week!
Thought you all might like this old photo from Christmas past. I’m the one with her hand always in her mouth. I think I’m about three and half in this photo. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
