The objective of this first project was to find texture in everyday objects around your house, and use that to create graphite rubbing transfers. So I used this...
to create this:
For the next project we had to create an Impressionist-style portrait painting, without using any paintbrushes! Yep, other than a final bit of shading from a Stabilo pencil, this lady consists entirely of paint dots "dabbed" on with things like sponge dabbers and pencil erasers.

This latest project required layering textures and colors over each other to create a digital collage "look", and was supposed to involve an inkjet image transfer. Unfortunately, we don't have an inkjet printer. Instead, I just sketched an image from my favorite bath soap wrapper onto deli paper, then collaged that over my background.
Needless to say, it's been more fun 'n a barrel of monkeys!
