Earlier this year I signed up for 21 Secrets.
One of the teachers this year is Cathy Bluteau, who teaches a class that combines collage and doodling. This is one of the collages I created during her class.
The collage and doodle combination is right up my street. After getting a feel for Cathy's easy-to-follow technique, I incorporated zentangles, doodles and some of the lettering techniques I learned in Joanne Sharpe's online Letter Love 101 class, which I took at the beginning of this year.
The background colour blocks are Spectrum Noir markers. Lesson learned: don't use them on watercolour paper, as that kind of paper sucks up the ink. I wouldn't mind as much if the Spectrum Noir refills were easily available in Germany, but that's not the case. Next time I'll use Pan Pastels or Caran D'Ache watercolour crayons.
