painted paper play

saw this wonderful technique over on iHanna and decided I had to play with this.  I’ve been extremely tired and needing easy and creative projects to soothe my over worked nerves.

I did four color ways on sheets of 140# cold-press watercolor paper. You need acrylic paint, a spray bottle with water and a scraper (old grocery card)–iHanna explains the how to.  I think I might try and see of the kids will like playing with this idea. Paint and a spray bottle, how could you go wrong?

I’m not sure what I’ll do with these sheets now. Cut them into something. Paint more on them. Not sure. I’ll let you know when I figure it out.

    I loved the colors. I made some yesterday with a pallette knife. I used some of one on a collage that I made. I love the unique patterns.

    Thanks for the mention my dear! If you haven’t used them yet maybe folded note cards would be nice as you’ve painted on water colour paper which usually is quite sturdy. Love your colours!
