Creative Tuesday: Gift (#62)

I'm just squeaking in under the wire for this week's Creative Tuesday!

This week's theme was Gift.  I've been craving an excuse to start my multimedia book... and I can't think of a better way to kick it off.   So, no having a clue what I'm doing, I jumped in and started layering watercolor paints and sharpie markers to create this uplifting doodle. 




I'm pretty pleased and looking forward to more experimentation with multimedia stuffs!  In my mind, I still need to try mixing paints and fabrics for the ultimate in color and texture. 

You can find out more about this weekly challenge (don't be shy) and see what the other artists put together here.

Wishing you puppy licks and sunshine!

Really nice job. I really like the way the text is illustrated here, as it is clearly atop the painting, yet doesn't block it out with it's presence, casting a 3D effect. Thanks
