This week our prompt was to create a snowflake using our initials and then to use that snowflake to create our page.
I decided to go with a tan tone with brown ink,black ink and charcoal and white gelly pen highlights. I really was not happy with it at all until I put in the shading and highlights. That helped. Quite a few hours in this one, though. I still wish I would have done a colored background instead. The words are: "Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together. -- In this group, we are the snowflakes - sticking together in our uniqueness - supporting and sharing." Some of us are novices at mixed media and others are a lot more experienced. The sharing is great!
I really had trouble getting a good picture of it -
