Left side-My rubber stamp resist from the front of this *bleedthrumanade actually provided a better negative space on the back of the page. The alcohol markers colored the matte medium I used on the front, but kept the color from bleeding through.
I decided to ignore the boundaries of the color and just draw.
Right-Well, the trees were supposed to be negative space, but I couldn’t resist adding some shading. *sigh* I’m a shading addict. Complete compulsion, absolute obsession with shading, lol! Can you find the kitty? The two birds?
*Bleedthrumanade–Got lemons? Make lemonade. Got marker bleed-thru? Make bleedthrumanades! Alcohol markers bleed through most paper and you get color on both the front and the back. While this bothers most people, I decided to make use of it. I color one side of the page and draw on it, then turn the page and use the same color for a second drawing–a bleedthrumanade.
