For week 2 of Tam's Art Heart Healing course we're embellishing a board book. Subject? Ourselves.
I've not had great luck with board books in the past. And this one didn't go all that smoothly. First, I should have sanded the book even more before I applied 2 layers of gesso. It was still too slick to hold my paints in a few places. I covered by doing my background in the same original color as the book so it's hard to tell at a glance.
Also, I have a terrible time with transfers. Honestly, this one is the best I've ever done. And it's still not great. I look cross-eyed in the photograph and really, I'm not!!! lol I think I moved the picture a fraction of an inch when I did my transfer cos it came out slightly blurred. And you can't see how I'm rocking my Cindy Brady bologna curls!
This weekend I'll work on lesson 2-B and hopefully post it by Monday.
