Have lots of old pieces of paper laying around waiting for a project?
I used a page out of a search a word puzzle book to create Tracy the owl.
I started with a marks it all graphite pencil then applied a thin layer of ivory craft paint over the top. Over this I applied black marks it all pencil, charcoal, and conte to the page while the paint was still wet.
I then layered on color using various soft pastels in a range of colors.
This would be a great project on a rainy day by yourself, or with kids.
