put a bird on it.
Jane LaFazio here. I love combining collage and sketching, it's such an easy and fulfilling way of adding some background interest.
For the bird above, I drew with a Tombow water soluble pen, then blended the ink with a waterbrush.
Here's a little video of my process:
My kitty BeBop is clearly drawn to the bird...or not.
Another page, with just a bit of old book page as collage. I drew the objects in pencil first, then pen, then painted them with watercolor. I wrote within the shape of the house, to add a bit of texture, then stamped some words, and created 'DREAM" using a letter stencil.
Head over to my JaneVille blog and see how I translated my bird drawing to fabric.
