    Browsing through blog posts in my rss reader a while ago, I came across a beautiful image called ‘Ablaze’ by Kathryn Dyche Dechairo. I was totally inspired!

    Tree of Life

    This is where the inspiration took me! I started with a torn magazine collage on watercolour paper. I covered that with a sheet of crumpled tissue paper stuck down with lots of semi-gloss gel medium. When that had dried I used my neocolour crayons to add some colour to the mix. Next I drew the outline of my tree using water soluble graphite pencils and coloured it in using the trusty neocolours. The next part involved covering the tree with hot glue! The last bit was adding the text using letter stamps which I then embossed.

    I toyed with the idea of adding some collaged leaves, but decided to keep it as a winter tree for now. Maybe I’ll try adding some digital leaves later!

    Knotty Blend!

    Today I decided to draw a simple knot. I’ve always been fascinated by the way the lines in knot work overlap and intertwine.

    Knotty Blend 1 - AEDM Day 4

    I started off by creating a simple background using acrylic paint and a homemade fun foam stamp. When it was dry I drew the knot in the centre of the page, coloured it using a mixture of neocolour crayons and acrylic paint, and outlined it using water soluble graphite pencils.Then I scanned it into the computer.

    Somehow it didn’t look quite right, so I added a scan of another image left over from Thursday’s project, blended the two together and ended up unable to decide which ‘blend’ I liked best!
