No matter. Her card gave me a reason to use a piece of watercolor paper I'd plopped my coffee filter on yesterday to create some stains. I'll mail it to her tomorrow.
What a fun coffee break this was.
It lead to more sketching, in my sketchbook using walnut ink.
And, of course, I needed to use up the other piece of stained paper for another postcard. Just getting ready for National Letter Writing Month in April.
I took the filter I'd used to make my afternoon cup of coffee and pressed it onto my sketchbook. Once it dried, I tried my hand at just painting with no preliminary sketching.
Keeping the paper staining process going, I took a bag from a cup of green tea and placed it on a piece of watercolor paper. The result was far lighter, not much stain at all.
After dinner I had fun trying out some new indigo drawing ink on the green tea stain.
Ok, so I may not of sketched my life away - but I certainly did sketch most of the afternoon.
