I've been able to play some in my craft room!! It's been way to long since I've posted. We've all been sick. This weather sure isn't helping! In the 30's one day and in the 60's the next. Crazyness! This past Saturday my two youngest and myself competed in our first martial arts competition. We brought home 6 trophies between us! Not bad for our first time! I'm finally posting some pics of things I've been playing around with.

The first pic is paint scraping on watercolor paper. The next few are pictures of paint scraping on muslin. I had never done anything on fabric. This was a lot of fun!! You can't see the sparkle, but in the first and last picture of the muslin pieces I added gold glitter. I did discover that I need more paint! Brighter colors as well. Most of the paints I have are so dark. I do love the metallic colors though! Just need to brighten my art up some.

If you are looking for tutorials and such... I suggest you visit some of the blogs listed to the right. There are some awesome blogs with LOTS of tutorials and tips!

Have a great day!

Hey Melissa... love them they look great!! I tried it on water color and muslin and prefer the muslin now. When I did my water color it got too muddy and slippery and just looked like a blob!! I too have a lot of dark colors, need to invest in some florescents.. LOL!!
