I think I have a problem. I have 5 journals that I’m working in at this moment and I just added a 6th! This one is a 7 x 10 Strathmore Black Field Drawing Notebook. It has lovely heavy black pages. I got it to play with my Caran d’ache crayons in. I find it a good thing to mix up the size of book you are working in. It helps you to stretch your creative muscle. This little portrait was done with the water soluble crayons and fluid matte medium. Layer after layer of crayon was built up over the black. After working on white, this is a refreshing twist. I am looking forward to playing some more tonight.
Well, I had to stop in to see what Michelle Ward was up to and the Street Team challenge was something I’ve been playing with already so I’m in!
Working on a black background is such a great way to think a bit outside the ordinary. Colors play differently and the dark under layer adds an air of mystery.
