We get two prompts monthly from the Wanderlust 2016 class and the second one for October was: What animal would you like to be? That took some thinking about but in the end I came up with giraffe, simply because the views from up where their eyes are would be rather splendid. I stayed with earthy colours to represent the environment in which they live and for good measure added more animals, such as a kangaroo and a panther. It helped that I discovered a giraffe stamp in my collection of foam stamps. I stamped it onto thin paper and collaged it onto the page.
The spread was mainly done with Golden fluid acrylic paints as well as one orange fluorescent one.
Techniques: collage with vintage materials and a postage stamp, rubber stamping, stencilling and outlining.
