The MIX challenge today is to do a 'washed' background'. Another awesome challenge! My 3rd color is purple! Thanks Jeanne!
I chose to work with watercolors using the wet on wet process. After the paper was dry, I mixed gesso and Golden's 'Titanium White' with a drop of water and flicked it onto the watercolor to make stars.
Found this old book spine that I ripped to size and stamped 'imagine' right on it. It did get just a wee bit crooked, so I hope you'll 'imagine' it's straight.
Die cut the trike and adhered to the card. Thought it was kinda boring so I punched the little bird and placed him sitting on the horn. I think that the horn is 'out of order' so he's filling in and he's saving the seat for YOU!
