"Give" is a print of an original mixed media illustration by Cori Dantini. How lovely and cute!
This could work with any symbol ... not only can it improve techniques in color, layering, texture and pattern, but those marks & colors could symbolically mean something. if students got or made a symbol for a book, etc... then they could do a map inside, illustrate through color or marks...sketchbook idea, give a silhouette of a bird and have them design it in colored pencil--
Timeless Treasures fabric: I Love Paris This fabric would be a great inspiration for freeform motifs
