SaWo – Yin Yang!

– Acrylic Paint (probably any paint actually!!) I managed to write my Haiku for the last stage in Page 4 of the ongoing Altered Board Book project this morning. Found a really nifty Font site too called Simply the Best! The one I chose is called Chowfun and was free – yay!!

This is the page I was making the Faux Washi papers for…

The red background is acrylic paint over gesso and PVA glue. It’s cracked because I forgot to paint another coat of gesso over the PVA glue before the red paint… but that’s how you learn, isn’t it?

The YinYang symbol is a large chipboard circle painted with acrylics and Anita’s 3D glossy white paint. Thinking about it now, I probably should’ve used washi without red in it to make more of a contrast, but hey?! “Hindsight is a wonderful thing”, innit?!
