I have been working on several projects that I can’t share here on my blog – some for submission and some for Guest Hosting! Plus, of course, there are presents to make for Christmas too! But this evening, I was intrigued by SaWo’s challenge to “scratch it”!! Basically, it’s about using crayon or oil pastels on your base, painting over that with acrylics and then scratching away the pain to reveal the colours underneath… There’s a link to a pretty good tutorial on the subject by Sandy’s Guest Host – you’ll get the idea when you see the pics.
Needless to say, things didn’t go smoothly for me at all! Firstly, I couldn’t find the box of metallic crayons which would’ve been ideal for this project and then the crayons I used laid down a pretty pathetic coat of wax, but I was left with a very interesting page for my altered book! This is on the back of a cereal packet and further enhanced with Neocolours and a white Posca pen!
