Musing Over Tearing Paper

As I mentioned a few posts ago I have learnt much (& continue to do so) from the Whiff of Joy Tutorials & Inspirations Blog. This week Claudia Rosa has provided 2 very different sketches for inspiration with interpretations to be submitted by Friday 18th. I have completed Sketch #4 first - it had me thinking as there was an indication of torn paper being an element of the design. Tearing paper is not something I find easy - not because of damaging the paper - it's just that I don't seem to be able to get a reasonable result when I do attempt it. It occurred to me that the pattern on the sketch looked like deckle edging &, since I have a box of  decorative edging scissors languishing on a shelf, I thought I might experiment a little. I cut the paper, inked the edges & then fitted them back together again.

I thoroughly enjoyed colouring the image, I think it is the first time I have been able to colour & use the first image - the rubbish bin normally fills somewhat as soon as I start colouring. I shall be using Musing Melinda for the second sketch as I want to see what impact a different sketch & colours will have upon the same image. Hopefully I can complete the second project also before the deadline on Friday.
