Whoa...what a busy week! Harvest Festivals, Halloween, costumes, chaperoning a field trip, editing pics, filling my shop (ever so slowly) ...and, painting too! Lots and lots of yummy painting. I just get going sometimes and bust out a bunch of backgrounds all at once. Then I have a stash of backgrounds to grab and start working on when I have some time.
I love working on backgrounds. Don't you? I get that "warm & fuzzy" feeling...total happy dance ready when I am creating backgrounds. The combination of book pages, found paper, little bits from here and there, paint, layers, sprays, stencils, texture....love! :)
I started working on this larger (for me) 16 X 20. I was actually cleaning my kitchen (no fun!) the other day when I thought the flowers on my paper towels would look really cool in a background. I am liking the way it looks and love the bumpy texture of the paper towels.
Look at that interesting pattern left behind after using the top of a plastic fly swatter as a stencil. I love it! I can't get too attached to the background though...it will undoubtedly become covered up by more layers. :)
|Sorry. The pic is a bit dark. Rainy day. :)|
I hope you are having a beautiful week!! I am looking forward to more painting this weekend, how about you? I definitely want to visit some blogs too...
