Groovy Grunge - Outside/In

Wow - I managed to from relatively nothing to more than I thought I could manage with online classes lol - not that I am complaining. Randel Plowman's 30 day collage class started today - I think is more academic than previous classes I have taken but that is a good thing. Will share about that later.  Meanwhile, Tammy Garcia's Groovy Grunge started over the holidays - I've managed to get two spreads done so far following the Outside/In activity.
This was the first - you paint up your background, start collage around the edges and then do whatever you want in the middle. The quote is from Teddy Roosevelt - words to live by when it comes to looking at other's art work!
For my second spread (which included "painting" the text instead of using markers) I committed to a black and white theme - but with a little added colour using a technique by Naomi Vona
Sprayed the this 1941 thrifted picture with a fixative and then used POSCA paint markers to add some pop. 

The next exercise is ominously called THE WALL lol. Enjoy. Jewels
