In my latest 7 x 14" banana skin journal ...
I brushed acrylics as a base.
Since I would use some tissue, I needed a light base
where the collage would be. I used gesso.
I used a fine ballpoint to rough out the figure.
I assembled a bunch of potential papers.
I use gluestick & a brayer & tore random pieces.
I had only a rough idea where I was headed.
Since I really like the unfinished look, I like the one above!
But, on I went!
This is where I audition papers for placement.
Getting near the end of paper, ready for details.
I considered leaving the face plain.
But I didn't, I kept going. Now 99% done.
Done. For extra credit, did you find the 1%?
