She got excited about SOC



SOC has started now - and the first week's colors are - 
blue , blue + green

  
I came up with a page in one of my Altered Books for this event.

the girl is drawn with Stabilo All pencil


 I had a lot of fun with the colors

 and with making marks on my background
I used some thread dipped in ink to throw down to get marks.

 All the techniques I learned last year at SOUL FOOD 
joining a lesson with Dina Wakley

    I am really sorry if I don't make it to your blog every day, but I have a lot going on in my life right now and blogging sometimes has to take a bit of a back seat....

  18. Eine wundervolle Journalseite und ein echt tolles Gesicht!! Der Hintergrund ist ja schon echt klasse, aber mit dem Gesicht darauf ist die Seite wunderbar geworden. Und die lockere Schrift darauf trägt auch so einiges zum Ausdruck der Seite bei...
    Alles Liebe, Beate

  19. I love the face, I love the marks, I love the techniques, and I even love your choice of blues and green. I haven't even started mine yet. Still not sure what medium I'm going to play in, either. So glad to see that you have already completed yours. Way to go.
