Mad Velour

We've switched things up in our joint themed project...it is now open to different sizes, though I only managed to finish one lonely little ACEO this week...it took longer than I expected it to, but that's because I was rather mesmerized by the surface.

We used velour, which is a paper that feels like velvet.  I used conte crayon and pan pastel and it was really cool to see how they responded to the surface...it's very soft and atmospheric.

So soft and atmospheric, in fact, that my scanner did a pretty crappy job in scanning this, but at this point, my camera is not going to do much better so here she is.

I bet this paper would be great for fur and other textures, like snow, fog...

yours came out so much better than mine.
I painted a truly crap painting but I will try and save it.

Do we like velour? I'm currently undecided. I have to get to know it a little better.

Did you use that turquoise pan? sooo pretty. <3
