Indigo Fat Book Page
Have completed my first page for the colour Indigo tonight. Quite a challenge that colour. It's a cross between a purple and a blue. It's my first time ever working with this colour, so I hope I've pulled it off successfully. Have attached it on left.
Background is a cross between a Misty Mawn and a Natalie Briney technique. Bird figure is loosely taken from a Karen Michel technique.
I like the way Karen uses real eyes from magazine pages and I thought I would give it a try.
I was very tempted to stick a crown on my birds head (I'm into crowns & wings like a lot of others at the moment), but did not cave into temptation and now upon reflection and looking at the scan I think it does look better without one.
If I wasn't sticking to a certain colour, I would have perhaps added a few other embellishments, but I like the simplicity of this piece. 9 more pages to go.
August's colour is Violet and as yet I have no idea what I will do.
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.
