I decided to paint this pear design again with different colors and added Sumi ink for the final coat. I learn something new everything I do one of these watercolor batiks. They are really fun--and you never know what you'll get!

This is a combination of a couple of weeks about this month's theme for DLP
Layers You Will Love!
Art Challenge: Cover Up Good Stuff
Journal Prompt: Going Undercover
A few weeks back I didn't get a chance to do the "What Lies Beneath" challenge so I decided to just try and combine a couple of weeks. What lies beneath the layers of paint in this one is sticky shelf liner and an image from transfer paper. I still haven't been able to get the transfer paper to work properly but it was enough to see the girls face. I haven't don't this type of mixed media layering in quite a while and it was fun to go and revisit!
This is Batik #3. This one is ok but I don't think I am experienced enough in batiking quite yet to do something so intricate. It's all still really fun though but actually quite time consuming with all the steps.

I decided to give myself about 30 minutes and not stress too much over it and just get come color down on the two page spread. I always love spraying paper with spray inks and adding some lettering. The quote is stamped with my hand carved Neuland stamps. I always love using them.
