Paint Party Friday 2

Wednesday, I posted a canvas I began...

Acrylics, stamps, lots of various papers including maps, telephone pages and scrapbook paper ripped for the rough edge..
As of last eve, here's the progress.... pardon the ever present glare I always get with early morning photo's on the desk...

More of the same materials mentioned above...added some napkins because I love the translucency and experimented with conte crayons on the skin tones.  Initially, I really loved the way they blended, but the more I worked with them, the less "blendable" they became.  Still trying to figure that one out, but even so, will definitely try them again ...perhaps on paper next round.

One last photo with some digital elements applied....and I will leave you to explore and or join in on other paint parties by clicking on the link below:)

WOYWW errr..94?

The typical messy, messy, messy desk here starting another canvas.  Early stages and lots of decisions ahead.  Good Times.

How does one become a butterfly?" she asked. 

"You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”
