smooshing technique

Using Wetlands this time and continuing the watercolour technique class,
we took some shimmery white card,  and a piece of acetate,
upon which we splat some ink and spritzed with water.


This time we smooshed the acetate over the card, laying down the ink in gay abandon,
except again, some were too controlling and worrying too much about it.....
So we left it to dry, and then went on to stamp over the top,
and slowly they started to trust me (not!).


We laid down some watery old olive for the grass.
and for the control freaks (kidding!) we stamped and fussy cut
another goose to stick on top, so he looked all nice and white and pristine like
(not even sure how to spell that!)

They were ....relatively.... happy with their results,
but so as not to loose their interest completely......
we then did something completely different.....

Do you think I'm cruel putting them through all this trauma
of getting inky and arty?!

Trust me, you'll like the next one.......maybe....

  4. Oh you are soooooo cruel (NOT)! It's good to try things that are outside our comfort zone now and again - how else do you learn things? I'm all for getting inky and arty as you know . . . it's a class I would've LOVED! xxx

  5. The trauma of it all! heh heh hee. I really like this card. I do better trying out watery techniques when someone says "this is what we are doing" so I'd be loving your class and not cursing your name.
