Week 32: Incorporate a fortune cookie fortune
Fortune's from fortune cookies!!!! Well I have a few of those sitting around . . . you never know when you might need one! Okay, I admit it . . . we order Chinese Take Out A LOT around this place and I keep a little jar in my studio stuffed with the fortunes from each meal.
I'm so glad I finally had a a use for these. I decided to create my background from a bunch of fortunes by using a UHU glue stick to attach them. I knew I wanted to sketch on top of them, so I spread a coat of clear gesso over the top and let it dry. The clear gesso leaves a nice, gritty finish on top that is perfect for rough sketching.
Using my fave graphgear mechanical pencil, I sketched out a 'Lucky Cat' and a fortune cookie.
Lucky Cat looks a little grumpy . . . have to turn that frown upside down . . .
There! All better now! I hope you enjoy this week's challenge, as usual, I am excited to see how all of you interpret it!
