and i have to be honest.....i am in love with this fat Lyra graphite pencil that i bought to take Katie's class. it writes so smooth and goes down nicely and then a spritz of water, and the graphite pops to life and the black runs and will move a bit.
valentine's are due in a swap very soon- so i wasted no time..... the valentine's were supposed to be on playing cards and since i have cleaned and reorganized my studio- do you think i can find my whole box of playing cards?!!! of course not.
so i improvised and used a bingo card because it was about the same thickness and just cut it down to size.
i cut and then gesso'd; and once dry- i glued on collage before adding paint and ink and working some valentine magic.....
i received an order for valentines after posting to FB.....so will working to fill that order this weekend.
