A few weeks ago, in a burst of artistic fervor, I suggested to my online friend Carol we should exchange background pages to see what the other would do with them.
I ♥♥♥LOVE♥♥♥ her background pages….and as you know from this blog I am ‘background impaired’!
So…..we created and mailed our respective pages. She even sent me a finished piece on one of my backgrounds! I just adore her ‘girls’! They have such soul.
|Isn’t she sweet?|
As an added bonus she made a tiny sketchbook from one of my backgrounds adding Khadi paper inside for me to play with. It even has a dangly bead!
I took her papers and propped them up on my easel so I could ‘ruminate’ on them before taking pen to paper. As they sat on the easel I became more and more apprehensive about ruining them.
Sooooo…..I scanned them into the computer, opened one on Tabley and played in Sketchbook Pro. That way I could try out different ideas without messing up the original! Plus I can use them over and over!
This is the first one. Isn't it YUMMY?
