Gloria J Zucaro's " Seven Step Inkblot"

This is Step One in my challenge entry for The Artist's Playroom.                                           
The challenge prompt this week from Jennifer Mclean is "INK".  
The first thing I thought of was inkblots.  
The second thing I thought of was that I don't have any ink that I could do an inkblot with. Then I realized my new Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils could be used like ink.  In my class on how to use them I learned I could make shavings from the pencil lead and then add water.  So I started with a piece of sketch paper and folded it in half the long way.  Then I put my inky orange on the paper, folded it and when I opened it, this is what I had.  My inkblot looks like a roasting chicken to me!

This is Step Two
I added the color Fuchsia and folded it across the diagonal.
This inkblot looks like a bee sitting on an iris to me!
(I think he is missing his wings, but maybe they are just see-through!) SCROLL DOWN

I had forgotten to take a picture when I added the Blue, so here is Step 3 & 4  Blue and Poppy.  Now I kept rotating it to see what it brought to mind. I folded the paper on the opposite diagonal and across the short way for these two colors.

I couldn't figure out what it could be, so then I made it Black and White and rotated it a few times.    Then I saw it! Do you see it? SCROLL DOWN

Step 5
                                              An Indian Head with Arrows!  
Now that is all I can see!  SCROLL DOWN
