Scribblism is Back
We got a donation of some of the funkiest paper. It is sort of see through. The paper takes well to markers and colored pencil and paint so I was excited about trying it out. Plus it being see though gave me an idea. What if I took advantage of the layers?
Like all good scribblists, I started with the markers and colored pencils. This is the best part because scribblism is so free. I just let my hand go where it wants.
For the second layer I decided to apply paint. The paper isn't perfectly see through so the colors of the finished product will be slightly dulled which for me is a good thing.
For the bottom layer I decided to cover the paper in white. This way I can hang the layers on the wall without a matt or frame, which to me would take away from the industrial look, and also without the color of the wall affecting the entire piece.
This photo gives you an idea of the opaqueness of the paper.
Here is a detail of the final work. I'm pretty happy with the results and plan to do more.
