bisters and, I Brake For Stamps!
kind of like a scientist when it comes to bisters (LOL! not really).....I keep on
experimenting, just sure I am about to make a huge discovery!! Well, I'm always hoping to find the key to keeping the colors nicely saturated and colorful. For this
experiment, I spritzed my water color paper first and then added the
crystals. I tried to limit the moisture while still breaking down the
crystals--although a certain amount is necessary. I also tried working in layers, drying in between color applications--that may be the best bet! I'm not sure if you can tell, but I feel like this piece has
some of the best color separation I've achieved so far---I can't tell
you how many pieces started with all the colors and just ended up brown
:( Definitely not the look I want!
To finish things off, I added a beautiful collage image from I Brake For Stamps called Zebra Butterfly Collage. It has just the right amount of open spaces to show off a colorful background!
I'm all about color this week as my kiddos are performing in Joseph and Technicolor Dream Coat!! Stay tuned for more color!
Shine and Be Awesome! Jane
