Learning to fly


This week's challenge at TMTA was to use textured effects. I love playing with gesso, and that's what I did here. I applied it many layers thickly all over, and also added little touches of wax pastels here and there and smeared the surface with fingers. The worn look is achieved by torchuring the card real bad. That includes rough sandpaper and scratching with several sharp tools. And finally I wanted to make some marks with a good old pencil, because I like the ephemeral feeling of it.
