Second Grade Art

I tried a technique from grade school but it didn't work. There's probably a term for the technique but I don't know what it is...I call it negative embossing. I put down, in crayon, a red color. Then I took an ad from a magazine (a horse) and put it on top of my paper and traced over it deeply. (the embossing part) I then took a blue and colored over everything.

The horse doesn't show up very well, but I'm posting it anyway. Basically, I just wanted to get something up on the ole blog.

I never tried that....No kid left behind, does not apply to me and this little adventure...
