The warm weather is finally coming! Here in North Carolina it's now 66 degrees outside with a high of 69 degrees expected today. And even warmer weather is predicted for this week. YAY!
To create this mixed-media piece, I cut out heart shapes from bleeding tissue paper. First, I wet the Bristol Board paper and then laid down the hearts. I added more water and a sprinkling of Kosher salt. After it dried, I removed the hearts/salt. I was surprised at the resulting subdued colors. Only the orange tissue looked vibrant.
To deepen the hues, I added some Gouache paint. I so like the texture created by the salt.
