page was started by flooding a page in a 6×8 inch Stillman & Birn
Epsilon sketchbook with turquoise watercolors and then dropping purple
into the still wet color. After that I let it fully dry.


then colored 2 of my die-cut sheep a deep dark color by layering sepia
and indigo watercolors. While
I waited for the sheep to dry I also colored both a brain and heart
print of some of my drawings. I wasn’t sure which one I wanted to use. I
cut both out once they were dry. I allowed the sheep to dry fully before adhering
them to the page with glue stick.

looking at placement of both the heart and the brain I chose to use
only the heart, as it fits my mood and the thoughts I’m having as I work
on this page. I uge UHU gluestick to attach it to the page.
picked a center point in the heart to use as the starting point of
radiating lines. I then used a ruler to mark off the lines coming from
the center. I used yellow and white colored pencils to fill in the
the page was finished I burnished the colored pencils to give it a
bright shine. Unfortunately I cannot take a decent picture of this
effect as I’m getting too much reflection from the page.
