Street Crusade #29 - Follow Up







Since my last post I've had such fun painting this butterfly book more, mostly drybrushing. Here are the monoprinted pages I showed the other day, now in final form and waiting to be bound together and swapped out :)






This crusade has been fun for me as well as a great learning and sharing experience, and making new friends along the way. Still plenty of time left to play - check it out at Michelle Ward's blog!!

Gabrielle - very cool to see all these pages completed! Thanks for coming back and sharing them. Bravo!

Gabrielle, The brushing definitely lends our work more texture and interest. It's actually kind of a mystery, too, when you don't realize what it is. I've been seeing these techniques and not even know how the cool result was achieved.
These are great!
