Arty Crafty Continued

In my previous post the backgrounds look very harsh and much too dark for my liking.  The colour palette above is much more me.  Soft and muted colours are where I am happiest although I admire strong colour in the work of others.  I still have not perfected the art of brayering (using a roller and ink pad) but I am sure my technique will progress with practice.

Your work is lovely, Simone. I've got a brayer and those big juicy inkpads, and have barely used them. I need more hours in the day!!!

Oh, I love these pieces in your last 2 posts. And I do prefer the colors in today's post - they make the balloons stand out more.
Would you call yourself an artisan? These are lovely!

Love the colours, Simone and your new word 'craftist' is perfect! Have a happy weekend.

Oh no Simone, "craftist" is such a reductive word for your many talents!
