A Few New Pages...




























The weather has been just right for working in my studio. No heat or A/C required. So I've been spending some quality time up there. Here are a few of the latest pages. The pink glittered circles on the "Muse-ic" pages were made in a really fun way. I can't recall where I read about it, but you squeeze a couple of acrylic paint colors onto a piece of wax paper and scrape them out into a thick layer, mixing the colors as you go. While the paint is wet you can sprinkle glitter onto it or add other texturizing materials (sand?). Allow it to dry completely--overnight would be best, then carefully peel off the layer of paint from the wax paper. It's awesome...like a layer of flexible plastic paper! Try it!!! I used a circle punch to cut out the circle shapes shown above.

I've been saving the waxed paper lining in the cereal boxes and this would be great to try the acrylic paint thing... recycle, repurpose, reuse... I TRY... learned from a great teacher!

It's really fun! Make sure you put the paint on THICK, though. :)
