Arting for 365 Day 313: Drifts

Day 313, 11 x 14″ Pierced paper and a smidge of watercolor

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

I thought I’d try my hand at combining different papers for my pierced image yesterday – using a lighter weight teal, and heavier 100 lb white. Here are two things I learned:

1. Putting the heavier paper on top weighed the whole thing down a bit. I should’ve let teal be the star of the show and had white around the outside. Or gotten a heavier teal.

2. The lightweight teal paper is like gizmo. As I added a hint of watercolor to it, it immediately warped. I knew this was going to happen, but at the same time I tried to convince myself it wouldn’t.

As for the design – I wanted to create an image that led the viewers eye throughout and this aspect of the piece feels pretty successful to me. More explorations of this sort are on the horizon.
