OKAY I'll try this again posted this once and
blogger quit on me.
I tried the tec on Sherre's blog
she is one of the owners of Art Tecnique group
belong to.
I didn't use water color paper but 2 pieces of
paper from a my art journal Sandy gave me.
I had pounded some flower on it.
I soaked the paper then put it on freezer paper.
Then I dropped different colors of ink on it.
Then put plastic wrap on top scrunched up
a bit, left it to dry over night. Then removed the plastic.
When it was dry I stamped one Tonniece lent me
with script on it one in gree the other in red.
I sprayed the paper with poster paint mixed
in a spray bottle red...
Then I dipped a small little tree branch in my glod leaf.
Ran the twig all over the paper.
I wanted to use them on one side of my game board I'm
altering for some charms I'm making.
So I gave a piece to tonniece and will do it
again on water color paper the right size this time..
More on this later....

I made a journal for a very special Lady
in my life. Tonnieces Mother who took
me in and became my Mom too..
She is 78 and is have trouble remembering
things, so I thought if she wrote some things
down it would help her. I love that Lady very
much. She made a huge differences in my
life growing up and showed me what
a Mothers love was really like...
