I was in the zone all Sunday afternoon. My husband kept asking me what I was banging on out there but he didn't get up from the football game to come see my efforts. The more I worked the more ideas came to me. Most did not work out but a few did.
I used a pencil eraser for these. I really liked the mark they made and experimented with tape and suction cups. The eraser did almost make holes in the paper.
These were made with this thing-a-ma-jig I found in my bathroom cabinet. I don't remember what it is called. I experimented with different ways to make marks with this one like striking, rolling, and continuous marks.
These are my least favorites. I don't think this group is particularly strong.
I used a nail brush, folded paper, and different lengths of tape.
Loved this tool! It is made with varying strands of paper clips and a pouncing motion. At first I didn't like it at all, but after looking at it as I used other tools, I found I liked this one the best.
These are the 10 pencil sketches from class.
These marks were made inside a roll of tape. A very good exercise for those that have a hard time staying in a small space. Thank you Kathy!
I made these with my pencil tray and pencils underneath the paper.
The same push/pull twirling technique with different music. The first was the Japanese and the second was the Irish Jig.
Swirling circles with all the pencils and some folded paper.
I think the top one is a pencil twirl and the bottom is a two hand sketch.
