Last two in Round 3 Mole



1)We got snow down our necks: watercolor with masking fluid and salt
2)first half of a collaboration with Ammon: pen and ink, touch of watercolor.

This completes my four 1/2 pieces in my own mole. I will be sending it off to Ammon as soon as I create some pocket stuff.

I sure wish we got some of your snow, Mary. A delightful series! I'd love to hear how you use the salt.

I really like this snow series you did! Typically it would remind me of where I live (Colorado)... but we've had very little snow this year, and currently we have none! It's been a strange winter here.

I like those butterflies in your collab piece!

HA! The bunny suit for Ammon is hilarious & oh-so-appropriate to bait him. You guys are too funny. Can't wait to see what he does with it.

The half/collab bunny-hood is hilarious (and a little creepy, in a good way)!

Thank you all so much! :-D

I haven't been online (much) for a couple days and it's great to se all the comments.

My brother is in colorado. I LOVE IT THERE.

I sprinkled salt on the wash strokes BUT it was so DRY in teh house that some of the strokes had dried to much for the pigment to collect properly around the salt grains. And bigger grains would work better I think.

The bunny hood is sharper than it looks. I don't know why the scanner isn't working so well any more! :-(

Ammon said...

Wow. Pressure is on. I can't wait. I love the stuff that is already in there.

I'm working on pocket items now, so I haven't mailed yet.
