I don’t know about you, but I have this endless list of amazing crafty/artistic people I follow through YouTube. I’m not even sure how many subscriptions I have to YouTube channels! I don’t always watch every new video they post and I have some I watch more than others. Christy Sobolewski is one I will usually watch when she posts a new video. Yesterday I watched this video and loved the background technique she used! Although I didn’t nail it exactly, and mine ended up a little darker, I love the end result. Sooo much texture and depth -layer upon layer of book pages Mod Podged down and then ripped off…..paint applied and then partially wiped off….. It was hard to capture it in a picture.
I love the layers of color…..very subtle. I’m not one to draw/paint faces so I didn’t even try to incorporate that part of her video so I chose to just draw and paint a butterfly. The quote I saw on someone’s FB post yesterday too and it just seemed to grab me. I can’t say I like how it turned out on the page, but it’s there and I’m going to leave it……all part of the learning as I explore this act of Letting It Go. The colors of the butterfly are some of the same ones I incorporated into the background layers on the page.
I doodled, I outlined, I had fun with the butterfly. This is one background I’ll do more of. Thanks for taking the time to stop by. As always, I do so appreciate it.
