another simple fabric card
Aren't these the cutest little buttons? A friend gave them to me and I just had to use them they were so cute!
I have been doing a bit of playing with paint, mostly for use in my artbooks and in fabric books.
With this paper, I wet my paper first (too wet as we shall see) then dropped watercolour randomly all over it and let it move. Then I applied different things to them as they dried.
As you can see from the dried pieces, the colour faded a lot. Water colour does become less bright as it dries, but my mistake here was to over wet the paper so it took a very long time to dry and as a result, the colours spread too far and became washed out.
Although I did not get quite what I was after, the pastel washed out paper, will come in useful for backgrounds.
Of course mishaps like this always lead to more 'what if...'s' than I have time to complete. what do you think about living to 150? Do you think I'll get bored by then?
