Steampunk Heart Twinchie

Standard

I made this twinchie (a 2″ X 2″ square) on watercolor paper. It is for a ZIA challenge. I am so grateful for challenges because it makes me try to create art in ways I might not normally try. I tried something new, besides the 2X2 size. I used pastels with a blender pen. It is a little more challenging with this small size. I went over a few areas with gel pens. I decided I would like to find some more gel pen colors. A black gel pen would be nice for tiny areas that have too much of another medium on them. I sketched out the basic design in pencil and then did the line drawing in Micron pen. I had to go back over some areas with the micron pens.  I wanted to try using a Steampunk style for a long time and this idea just came to me after drawing a couple of flowery hearts that did not feel special. An especially awful flowery heart is on the back of this one because I didn’t feel like getting the watercolor paper out and cutting a little piece of it. I had the idea in my head and wanted to get it down on paper. I do like this one.
