Creative Space August 6, 2009

My creative space today is all about trying to finish a few things. Get the binding on the wrap and sew on some buttons. The velcro is an experiment. I want to see how long it lasts. It could last forever or it could rip off after 2 uses. Hopefully it stays on :)

And finish Deuce. I like the left eye, not too keen on the right, might be able to fix it. I need to go over the basic coat layer that I have put down and make it darker and try to make it look more like fur. I am really liking this paper, the texture is rough but not rough enough to cause any problems with the pencils.

so hopefully I will have a finished wrap to post later :)

Great depth to the eyes Jen. I thought it was a lot like drawing on sandpaper, lol. Good to look at the way someone else handles a surface :D
