Challenge 21 - OOF (Out of Focus)
Yay I did it!!!! I made up my mind that I was going to do the Challenge this week (mainly because I felt like it had been weeks since I had done one when in fact I just missed one week) For some reason I just couldn't wrap my head around the Royal Wedding Challenge so I guess last week I wasn't up for the Challenge (sad face). I started this piece last night and thought I was on a roll - when I realized that I had made squares instead of diamonds (which meant they didn't line up right). When I had the squares down the lines didn't work out so instead of starting over (and wasting paper) I went for the big black background (after putting down a lot of black ink) and started on the white. I have a white charcoal pencil, a white watercolor pencil, a white Prismacolor pencil, a white Sharpee paint pen (that just drips big ugly spots on the paper), a couple of white gel pens. a white chalk pen, and of couple of white Pen-Touch pens - all of which have their own good points but none that I'm in love with. I guess that's the reason I really don't like doing things on black paper. Oh well, I guess this is another batch of lemonade (you know making lemonade out of lemons??). Make your own lemonade today with whatever comes your way.
Ok after I posted this it really does look "out of focus" - he! he!
