Well, it's been a fabulous week at Smeared and Smudged. The Kickstart Your Art 7 Day Art journal Challenge is coming to a close and I've managed to make it through the entire week. WooHoo! I've learned a lot and had all kinds of fun, but today was a real challenge as I had 3 projects to complete. Today's prompt was an Easy Water Blotting Background with a fabulous tut, again by LauraB. I have to say the whole self made background thing is new to me and I've learned so much. This one was particularly fun, kinda like magic, and none too difficult, thank God!, since it was the 3rd thing I did today.
Started with Distress Inks and blending tool and then just swiped the pad on the page to get more depth of color. Spritzed with a Mini Mister and water to blend colors and blotted.
More supplies collected. Sprayed with Dylusions, then did the water blotting with that dart thingy for the dots, the Dylusions spray cap for the open circles ana a brush for the wavy lines (I was going for an underwater look).
Had planned on a mermaid or something and then remembered the fab image from the Steampunk Misses from Octopode. Just how I felt. Even too tired to say more. The page says it all.
