I painted a watercolor wash over some vintage ‘onion skin paper’ which is very thin paper which is slightly wrinkly but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t completely crinkle when I added the wet paint.
Using this paper I cut out circles and butterfly shapes which I layered over the base pages I had created.
The top page has a loosely painted self portrait with watercolor splashes which I glued the shapes over.
The bottom page is butterflies glued and layered along the bottom ‘escaping’ from the darkness of the black gesso.
I used a fine black pen to make some outlines and doodles.
I have some sheets of watercolor wash left to play with, so I wonder what I will do with them!
Happy Friday x
