Rose for 5-Day Challenge

I’ve been having some fun in my altered book. Sunday’s cosmo prompt filled in one side of the spreads hide-away page.

This morning I came across a Facebook post of a David Suzuki quote (text below in case you can’t read my mediocre handwriting):

The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it. If a mountain is a deity, not a pile of ore; if a forest is a sacred grove, not timber; if other species are biological kin, not resources; if the planet is our mother, not an opportunity—then we will treat each other with greater respect. Thus is the challenge, to look at the world from a different perspective.

The flower challenge for Monday morning was a rose.

Sketchbook Revival Day 13 Session 1

Koosje Koene “Let’s Play”

I used watercolor pencils until she got to the technique using the white crayon to create the wallpaper effect…then I dug out my ancient set of crayons and liberated the white one from the box for its first-ever performance.

Adding the wallpaper background robbed my main subjects of their prominence on the page. It was a pretty weak presence to start. I added fine-liner edges to some of the subjects. I added just enough to define them without completely outlining them.

Happy Easter! Or have a wonderful Sunday!

Edit: I’ve removed the art because I read the text under it. My apologies.
