I have been slacking off the last few days since the road trip. I have allowed myself to give in to the allergies and give myself excuses for not getting back to work. Today I wanted to do two activities to start to make up for some of the time.
These are the tea bags that Karen gave me a while back.
This is how canvas #8 looked before I started working on it tonight.
This is a close up of the neck of the llama/giraffe girl. You can see where I previously added the tea bags on the left side of her neck.
This is a close up of a tea bag being applied to the surface.
When I started adding the tea bags today I noticed I must have used the darker ones before. See the difference in the color of the outline?
I decided to go back over the darker outlines with the lighter tea bags...more work but it looks a lot better. Also, it gives just a teensy bit of height to the edge.
It is much easier to see her neck now. The tea bags were just the perfect thing I needed to make her neck different from the horse but still not too prominent when compared to the horse.
I used up all of the lighter tea bags. I am anxious to see how this looks once it is dry!
Here is the second activity for today.
I made the hand/arm for the left side of the marsupial.
I'm fairly happy (so far) with the way the hands/arms are turning out...they look pretty even. I took off the upper arm part, though.
