Inspired by a used dryer sheet to create texture in my #woiw Challenge "Book"by ©Peggy Gabrielson
I save everything, one never knows what kind of art we can create out of it... a used dryer sheet from the laundry. A layer of gesso was applied; once it completely dried I then added color to it.
My favorite as of this moment to colorize the material are my Inktense blocks.
A wet paint brush with water makes the color permanent. I love that about the Inktense blocks, don't you?
Here is the close up of layers I decoupaged on my Strathmore Recycled sketch paper. Golden Matte Gel is my favorite to use for this process. Do you have a preference?
I added Japanese papers and handmade paper from old paper towels for more texture. A 05 micron ink pen was used to outline my sketch I found on my browser as free clip art. I decided to add chalks and oil pastels enhancing the colors a bit before signing and sealing.
My favorite sealer is by Golden Archival Varnish. It does give my end result a gloss look for my postcard sized #woiw challenge.
