Tie Dye Take Two

I like the spirit of what tie dye represents. A symbol of empowerment. Now more that eveR we need to feel empowered. We always do.

Never have I enjoyed using ink so much.

Notes

Peace: use watercolor pencils to color in layers

Happy: mixing ink with water

Tie Dye : adding ink droplets on trasparent watercolor

Experimentation on a larger scale

These are fun letters. Watercolor is like Tie Dye. You layer and layer. There’s lots of color. You add droplets of water, more color, and I added a little salt crystals. You have to wait till it dries for the magic to happen. Different beautiful results every time!

Not sure how I’ll use this background but it’s beautiful!
