Happy New Year everyone! We hope you have some time today to check out the first of the new year's challenges over at CAS Mix Up! Loll has created colorful new graphics for us this year as well.
Nancy is our host this month and here is her challenge:
I used cling wrap on watercolor paper with acrylic paints (photos below), die cuts, stamping and enamel dots for my CAS sympathy card.
I used this YouTube video listed over at the CAS Mix Up blog for my technique:
Acrylic Paint and Plastic Wrap Background Painting: 3:15 by StudioSilverCreek.
First I brushed 2 colors of Americana Acrylic paints (Mint Julep Green and Milk Chocolate) rather thickly on my sheet of watercolor paper.
I placed a piece of cling wrap larger than the paper (Saran Wrap in the US) over the painted sheet and scrunched it up with my fingers.
Then I lifted the cling wrap off and had this lovely panel of marbleized color.
Here's a 2nd card I made that I cut from a section of the panel with less brown on it.
I have lots of paper left to make many more cards too!
You'll find several YouTube links showing techniques using cling wrap over at the CAS Mix Up Blog! So let's learn something new for the New Year and get creative! Can't wait to see what you make!
