I picked random paint colors of purple, green and orange then pulled out a stack of things I'd cut from magazines and books and just chose a few things not even thinking much about the colors. I was quite surprised at the things I picked when I got them all laid out on the page. And even though I had no theme in mind I still have one...eyeglasses!
On the left page above there was some kind of weird tree/plant drawing in the book on the upper left corner. I utilized it, added paint and doodles and it became a headdress for the woman wearing eyeglasses. Some of the orange flowers in the bottom corner were also on the book page and I just enhanced and added to them. The little alphabet sampler reminded me of an eye chart which fit right in with the green eyeglasses.
Then I added some washi tape and lots of doodles on both pages and it was finished. It all came together very easily so maybe I'm back in my groove again. I sure hope so.
I did a small face sketch but I think I'll save the faces and post them once a week. That may work better for me.
