Playing with paint

Today I've been playing with paint. I decided to make some more hand painted paper I can then use in my Art Journal, in ATCs, OSWOAs (Original Small Work Of Art - 4x6 inches), mixed media work ets. etc.

I used the dry brush technique, which is just what it says on the bottle: you use paint, and a dry brush, NO added water. Try not to get too much paint on the brush, and I found it helps if you're using an old brush that has the bristles sticking out all over the place.

Use as many colours as you'd like. I used pink, green, yellow, blue, orange, red, white and silver. I might add some stamps later on, too.

I like to call it 'DIY paper'.

A whole pile of yummy paper. Can't wait to start using it!
