In this piece I experimented a great deal. First, I used bleeding tissue paper in the background and I sanded gesso. I used ink sprays to add color and I wiped color away. I really like the muted colors that resulted. I added some polka dot fabric that came in the mail with something I ordered online. Jane Davies had a video on using hot glue to make stencils. So after I tried the process I had colored stencils which I cut up to use as collage material. I added mica over some of the hot glue stencils. I also learned how to use "replace color" in Photoshop as I wanted the baby elephant to be more in color line to the adults. Let's go to Africa!
