The face was from a brown paper bag that Connor brought home from a school trip to Bath.
I ripped it, stuck it down, gessoed over the lot, stamped a few black stars, and then thought "now what?"
I decided that the face looked a bit too much like Father Christmas (it's actually a Gorgon, according to Connor anyway, I thought they were female but what do I know?), so on a bit of a whim I made him into a sun.
Then I grabbed the first tub of paint that looked like it would go with the yellow - hot pink fabric paint, which dried a bit strangely over the gesso, almost like alcohol inks, kinda cool.
Then I sprayed the living daylights out of it with irridescent gold glimmer mists. Just seemed like a good idea at the time.
Stamped journalling about how I can't wait for the warmth and the long daylight hours of the summer, and three gold eyelets, and it was done.
I love this letting-the-page-go-wherever-on-earth-it-feels-like-it thing, it's fun!
