Day 14: Inkblot, On the Edge

November 14th, 2011

More inkblot action today! Glad some of you enjoyed the video in yesterday's post! I'd forgotten the end sort of leaves you hanging. It was originally done as part of an online workshop, where the video was the beginning and the second part was a written explanation with pictures that explained how you can use whatever materials you have handy to work into your inkblots, bringing out the images you see there. I tend to use marker, ink, and colored pencil on my inkblots, but you could also use paint, pastels, or whatever suits you!

Here's an example of a before and after I did previously, so you get a better idea of what I mean. What would you have seen in the first image?



p.s. I was so honored to be interviewed by the fabulous Kimberly Wilson for her Tranquility du Jour podcast! You can listen in as I talk about Art Every Day Month and motherhood here.

You add the loveliest details to your inkblots. They just come alive!

This looks like so much fun!

I simply adore the inkblot art!

I love your inkblot art, I remember you posted some last year and I was really intrigued. This one turned out great!

It really is the most ingenious technique..lovely results. The best part is each time it is so different:)
