MM* with pink and using sequin waste!!!!
This month on Michelle Ward's Street Crusade she has challenged us to show our brush strokes!! I have never joined one of these challenges before, but she has shared various paint and brushstoke techniques this month, so I had to give it a go!!
MM* (Monoprint Mania) is what I have for you here. I am currently working on a butterfly book swap in one of my groups and decided that I will use only paper scraps for the base of my backgrounds for each page. The book is pre-cut blank chipboard in the shape of a butterfly and the pages have to be completed on all sides (5 chippie butterflies = 10 sides). I knew that after I glued down the initial collage papers I'd want to add paint in some fashion, and woldn't you know that Michelle's instructions for making monoprints with paint seemed like just what I was looking for!!
So here are some shots I took this afternoon of my MM*, hehehehe. I was painting and monoprinting all sorts of scrap paper, tags, sequin waste, and using a recently die cut paper as a mask to monoprint!! So easy and a great effect! Thanks so much Michelle!
By the way, if you have a chance pick up the new mag from Somerset, Apprentice, and try Michelle's process for gesso resist. You'll probably like that too, I sure do ;)
