Daily Art stop - Challenge Wednesday - 'Earth'

It's been a while since I have done a Challenge Wednesday the last one I did had a 'spring time in Paris' theme and was one of the first things I posted. I seem to be in a right old routine these days and I'm drawing pretty much every day which I'm loving!!! It's so great to be creative again. So this week I thought I'd try and submit something for Challenge Wednesday at Daily Art Stop So here it is:

The theme is 'Earth' and I guess I'm trying to convey the message that it's important to look after it now so it's there for our kids. I worry about what the future holds for my boys in terms of the environment. I decided to play around with texture and do a bit of mixed media as I'm really enjoying that and wanted to try something new so I kinda made it up as I went along. I pasted some toilet paper (yep toilet paper) to a sheet of normal drawing paper then when it was dry I painted that. Then on another sheet of paper I drew and painted the girl etc and cut her out and stuck her on. I used acrylic inks and normal acrylic paints. I'm quite happy with how she turned out and really enjoyed doing it. I had no real plan I just did it. I'm looking forward to trying a bit more of mixed media and seeing what else I can come up with!!!
