This week's Illustration Friday topic is LOST - once again I am cutting it as close as possible posting my picture merely a few hours before the next topic is announced.
The other day a certain young man in this family had to write "I will feed my lizard in the morning." 50 times. When he finished he left the finished paper on the counter by a pen - with all kinds of empty space on the back just begging for some doodling. I was thinking about all the things I needed to do that day and used the ballpoint pen to quickly sketch some girls which inspired the caption -
"She doodles girls while LOST in thought."
Anyhoo - after I was done I made a copy on the inkjet printer. I layered old dictionary paper in my art journal covered with a thin layer of gesso and then tried to do a transfer with Golden Soft Gel. It worked!! I was so tickled - I've watched Donna Downey do this technique so many times on her Inspiration Wednesday videos but had never braved it myself - easy!!
Got some letters from my box purchased during an excursion with Kim and then colored one girl with
hues inspired by the current Play Date Cafe Challenge.
