Did this page inspired by the next lesson in Draw your Words. It my first mixed media page. I don't know if you can see them, but step one I cut out umbrellas from some origami papers I had and glue them down on the page. I let them dry then used some colorbox ink (a pink thru purple mix of colors), and drug those around the page. Found a quote about rain (which is what it did all day here), used a water soluble graphite pencil to layout the letters, then used an extra fine Sharpie to outline the block and script lettering. Finally I added some ink then pencil around the word Rain, the idea to make that word pop, not sure that worked. This was fun but very time consuming, doing a drawing and adding a bit of watercolor usually takes me less that 30 minutes, so that appeals to my lazy side (or I'm busy and need a break side).
