OLW102


When I grow up I want to be able to watercolour properly.  Until then I'll just get messy and who cares if I don't get the colours or shading quite right.  Artistic licence.  Just squint.

The challenge at One Layer Wednesday, hosted this week by the very talented Ardyth, is:

Make a one layer card inspired by your favourite school subject. 

My favourite subjects at school were English, French and Art.  Difficult to choose.  It would have been easier to name my least favourite subject: Physics - but then who would want to make a card related to Physics?

So I've gone with Art.  In my Art lessons the drawing came easier than the painting for me.  And although I painted this image (with Distress Inks), I certainly didn't draw it.  That was some fella called Leonardo. (Actually, he could do the Physics as well!)
