Paper stage 2

This is the piece I was going to paint with black ink, could not find the black, so I dribbled some purple and sepia calligraphy ink over the surface letting it run into the crevices, then rubbed with a large dry brush.if I say so myself, its gorgeous :) I thought I would scan it as soon as its dry, so just under half the area fitted on the scan, not sure if it will show up the subtle purple and browns, what happens next, who knows,This is the one that was going to get the bleach treatment, will go and have a play.


This one I just sprayed with Moon Glow spray, Treasure Island, and it is glowing green and verdigris, I hope this shows up,
Don't forget if you click on the image it enlarges enough to get a better look

Keep going Carol. Don't make us wait until tomorrow for the bleached effect. I wish you had a webcam so that we could watch you doing it!

Ye Gods, you wouldn't want to see me in creative mode, tatty jog pants, old t-shirt and barely a comb through my hair,
although at this moment there are no paint marks on the pants, how long will that last

Hey Carol...we must be twins...I'm always crafting in jogging style pants and old stained up shirts, and the hair, who knows! These are gorgeous...such deep rich colors. Yummy!

hi, I've been trying to do something like this - that is fabric and paper combined - but I don't seem to be able to get it right!
(i'm newish to the world of textile art!)
This is lovely. I'm off to investigate what moon glow spray is!

Elizabet,coud not find an e-mail link,
If there is anything you want to know just ask, we have all struggled with new techniques, I am a great one for playing and see what happens.

The dark pages are great. I'm curious to see the beaching, wondering if the colors will separate out.

Love the colors in that second piece. I can definitely see that green coming through.

The colours are coming through on the monitor, but I bet they look completely different for real. Can't wait to see the next stage :)
