doesn't look like much...........


on my yahoo group paperimagerydesigns this weeks challenge is to make painted paper backgrounds-right now this looks like something my cat hacked up!!
-but once its cut up into atc's i hope its better!
such an easy technique to do
any color tissue paper
2-3 different color acrylic paints
a credit card
large garbage bag
randomly squirt the paint over the tissuse paper and then use a credit card to swipe and smear and taaa daa art!
let the paper dry on the garbage bag and then peel off slowly
yes the tissue paper will rip-just cut around it or use it :)
but for some reason the t.paper keeps the paint from becoming muddy 2-3 colors are best any more than that and they will blend and become a whole nother beast..... ok off to cut it up for atc''s and see what i come up with :)
