|Ideas Creep in During the Early Morning|
I started this piece weeks ago and today was the day that the remainder of the ideas crept in. January is self-portrait month for my gentlemen's ATC group. Perhaps I need the monthly theme to conclude this piece. The background on the right is surgical tape that I colored with Inktense blocks before collaging. The left hand side of this journal page is gesso colored with Inktense. I created the stencil and spray painted the image. Then I added washi tape and stamped the words. The finishing touches include Portfolio pastels stenciling.
It seems that Blogspot has a new method for uploading photos to blogs. The photo must first be uploaded in Picassa to a Picassa Web Album. This is a new step as previously I could upload directly from computer files. Something new to me is adding a watermark which is kind of nice as I can now put my initial signature in the corner.
