I'm just crushing . . .

. . . this paper thing!

I played with a few kinds of paper to get a variety of background effects.  Well, truth be told, it was just to watch the paint run - there's something about it that's really mesmerising.  From top left clockwise they are watercolour paper, copy paper, artist tissue, a coffee filter, and Hammermill 80 lb. colour copy paper.  There's quite a change from paper to paper, and I'm especially loving the warm glow in the watercolour paper.


To see how it's done, check out the video:


And since this is my last post before Christmas, I'm just going to leave this here, along with a wish that the season bring you all the light you need to find your way to loved ones near and far, that you travel safely, and bring the light home with you in your heart.


I'll see you again next week, and expect to hear all about your rejoicing!
