Illustration Friday - SECRET

"Those that cannot keep their own secrets ought not to be entrusted with the secrets of others."
-William Scott Downey

Started with a layer of paint markers - I have only a few of them in the ZIG and Painters brands.  LOVE how quick and easy it is to start a page when you don't have to open up a bunch of bottles of paint and use the brushes.   
Looks like the secret she is sharing is an embarrassing one.

Michelle, i know i've told you this before, but i really love where you are taking your art. So there. I'm saying it again. :-) LOVE the way you chose to treat this week's topic. And leaving the faces blank makes it even that much more dramatic. Love it. xox
