Fire



This month's theme at Creative Every Day is Fire. While staying at a conference last week, I was intrigued with the 3D effect of the fire evacuation signs at my hotel. They made perfect rubbing surfaces. I created some watercolor pencil flames and a portrait to add them to. Finally, I burned the edges off a gessoed book page for the background. All in all, I had lots of fun playing around on this one.

  3. I like him. He reminds me of all those rock star type guys that are so fun to look at, but burn you if you touch them!
