Hello Again--second post from me today.
At Artful Times this time the theme is to make anything you like using colour techniques. I jumped straight in and did my own thing for the first one though I am sure I have seen the technique somewhere along the way.
For this tag I used distressed inks for the background then damped the whole tag before dropping on some alcohol ink. I let this spread out and dry then had a look to see what shapes had been left behind. It looked like a spray of flowers so I edged the blobs with white pen and then drew some leaves and stalks.
I think this is called a butterfly effect. Firstly fold a piece of paper or card in half and blobs of whatever you like on one side. I used food colouring on this one as I had been clearing out a kitchen cupboard and wondered why I had ever bought them--never used them for the proper use at all. Next fold the other side onto the blobs and pat down the paper--I used a brayer to make sure all the colour had spread out on both sides. Then just do your own things to make a page like no other. I stamped, stencils, coloured, sprayed and really enjoyed doing it.
Thank you for popping in.
Love Chrissie xx
