Friday is here already. This week flew by faster than fast can go. School wrapped up and summer has arrived.
Got to love that!
So yesterday I started my summer break from school, and I spent the a big chunk of my day as any paint lover would do, playing in my happy space and trying out a couple of new things I recently bought.
First off-Brushos. I've never seen these in any store here in the US but have read about them on blogs and a few European websites. Then when I went onto Dick Blick to order a few things and did a search for water colors they showed up and I thought I would try a few colors.
They are lots of fun and make some cool backgrounds.
(As many of you already know, so bare with me, OK?)
I love how you can make a tie dye effect using them as well as adding lots of water so you can make drips at spots and drops.
The other new item I had to try out was this small round Gelli plate I picked up the other day. I've wanted to try a round plate, and I thought like small sized (4 inch) circle might be the most user friendly.
I had fun playing with paint and some foam stamps I have.
This stamp was by far the one I was feeling the most.
I made a few backgrounds of printed circles.
And although I love these pieces, I really liked using the plate to ink my foam stamps. Makes some cool colored inpressions.
So I spent quite a bit of time stamping up my foam stamps and then working on some of my Brusho backgrounds.
Here's a few favorites.
Always good to have ready made backgrounds, and experimenting is always an interesting experience. I love seeing what happens and what masterpieces ended being created.
I am linking this post with Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting this every week. Stop by and see what lots of talented people have been up to.
Have a great weekend, and I hope you're up to something good.
