I was checking a couple of water paint boxes I had one for a while
( they are in little silver tubes) and all but 4 were dried up,
the other one was a little better I thought I had better use some
before they got all wasted.
So I painted some paper.
I had this lovely sheet of paper
Tonniece gave me.
Its like a brown bag but textured
like raffia, stretches.
So I cut it upin to pages
then painted a few. I have about
a dozen more which I'm going to
make a home made book..

I also have done a bit of paper casting,
if it works, drying now.. well I'll be doing a bit of this.
I love Ellis Cookes work www.intothebylistic.blogspot.com/ she uses a lot
of papercasting and I just love her stuff colors are awesome, vintage looking things
wonderful.. So I'll be trying out my own thing.... Posted by Picasa

Ahhh, so it's water color paint on a textured paper. Thanks for the info, Dianne. Now I cannot wait to see what you're going to do with them :)

They look great Dianne. Love the way the colors turned out.
I'm with Luci, Can't wait to see where you are going with this.
