This month at La-De-Dah the inspiration is to "Play Petit" and make an ATC.
I have never made an ATC so I thought I would give it a go. I also have not drawn any faces for awhile, so I decided to do that as well.
I first sketched out the faces in my sketchbook and then glued them to the ATC card and then put clear gesso over top. The gesso gave them quite a bit of texture for the watercolour pencils I used to colour them.
The first face I coloured in natural colours and then the other two I experimented with using one colour palette for each.
I prefer the first one but it was fun to try something different and with them being the smaller ATC size, I felt that if it didn't work out it was not as disappointing as it would have been with more time and effort that would have been invested in a larger size.
I will do more ATC's now but instead of just faces I will try other styles like collage, because I can see that the small size does give you the freedom to try all
sorts of things without making a big commitment.
Every month Sarah at La-De-Dah has a new inspiration for her Mojo Monthly! I am sure she would love to have you join in!
