sketchbook challenge

I've still been working on my sketchbook challenge pages. this month's theme is opposites....this one was inspired by some colour studies that Jane Davies showed on the challenge blog and her own blog. red and green are opposites on the colour wheel. this has been collaged and painted.
and this one is called 'Glory Days' ....because I was listening to Bruce Springsteen whilst playing with the paint, stencils, etc. (I'm a Springsteen fan from waaaay back!). it started life as a brown envelope. I threw paint over it, stencilled some numbers and letters on it, then cut it up and pasted it into my sketchbook. then I worked it a bit more with rub-on letters and numbers and a little stamping, and added a tag I'd made whilst working on the envelope. you can check out my Flickr pages for more....
