This week's submission to Mixed Media Monday.
Immediately upon seeing this week's challenge topic I did pencil sketch in about two minutes in my 5 in x 5 in Canson sketchbook. I then gessoed some 9in x 12in watercolor paper and painted it with some lovely creepy green acrylic wash I created. I pulled out a bunch of papers to make paper collage quilt, pillow and window/night sky.
Then I got artist's block.
Then I hurt my arm.
Wanting to get the collage done, I decided to ink and watercolor in the original sketch. The lines on the window aren't straight - arm still hurts just enough .
Only it didn't look dark enough, plus it wasn't mixed media enough (though I think technically ink and watercolor are mixed media).
I found a sheet of woven scrapbook paper. So I just put it under the ink/watercolor sketch in the scanner:
Though I have a new computer, I have not yet installed my old copy of Photoshop Elements. But new computer came with Windows 7. I played around with the saturation, tint, and color temperature that program provides and I am kind of happy with the one I submitted.
