So the prompt for this week is ocean/beach/summer fun...one of my favorite places on this great earth is the ocean and I was pretty excited about this prompt. So I dug out my inks, some paper towels, my journal and a pic I fussy cut from Va Va Voom - Classic Hollywood Pinups.
I got started on a clean spread with my inks, but I wasn't getting the result that I wanted, so I got the paper towels I used to blot up the excess inks, and started tearing them into strips and gluing them down onto the paper to create my ocean.
Once I had them where I wanted them, and had everything glued down, I glued down my pic, wrote my phrase, "wish you were here..." and began going back over the paper towels with some acrylic inks to add a little visual interest to my texture.
I really love how this one turned out...and here are a couple more pics of some other things I worked on this weekend.
