I love this page. I used several different techniques on it. I printed the bug on book paper. My ink was running out so the color is different from the original image. I really liked it and worked my page around the colors. The flower is drawn on a piece of parchment/deli paper that comes in between cheese slices. It is thicker than my other deli papers. I saw where another artist uses these in her work. At first I thought, "how crazy". But while getting cheese for breakfast this morning, I took a look at the paper and said "Why NOT!" I love the way it turned out. After I did the background on the deli paper, I saw in the colors a shape that could be made into a flower. Hence the flower! I used charcoal pencil to make the flower shape. Was very pleased with the way it turned out. I used more inks, paint and a phrase that I thought applied to what I was creating in this page.
