I really get lost in creating backgrounds with my used, painted, messy cleanup paper towels from other projects. I have made lots of backgrounds for ATCs using this technique.
Here are a couple ATCs that are almost finished.
I wish I had taken before pictures of the background so you could see how the image appeared.
And I am sure you understand how that goes.
For me, I get this spark of inspiration and I just start playing.
The last thing on my mind was the camera since it was in the other room.
this is "sad eyes". She is almost complete, I think?
here is "hummingbird in flowers"...
a few touch ups and a thick coat of Liquitex gloss gel medium and it'll be done too.
Below are pictures I took today of some backgrounds for ATCs that I finished.
I played around with my Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium; I tried light gel medium, heavy gel medium, scrunching up the paper towels a little and even tearing up pieces of different paper towels and making a collaged background.
It is so much fun seeing what comes out when they dry!
These backgrounds really inspire me to look for the image they hold.
It'll be fun to see what appears
out of these!!!
Do you see any images?
My prayers go out to all who are affected by Hurricane Irene, may you be safe!
