I haven't participated in either one for a couple weeks so it felt good to have ideas percolating around the back of my brain til I felt like I'd found the right one. For IA, I drew my funky little dragonflies on a sheet of spattered scrap paper then doodled on them a little. The background is an advertising postcard (8x5") that I covered with crumpled foil then painted with acrylic - then I lightly sanded the paint off the tops of the foil creases for a great, subtle shine with the bits of silver showing through (which totally does NOT come through on the scanner). The little teal 'frame' was sent to me by a generous mail art friend.
Then Jenn's juicy challenge. I struggled more with this one because most of the juicy things I could think of, I'm unable to draw. So I retreated to one of my faves.....the pear. However, I did sort of try a different look....it's on watercolor paper, watercolors, oil pastels, stamp ink dots.
Join either or both of these challenges - each week they give great suggestions and such fun people join in. To see what others have done for the challenge be sure and check out the links at each site.
