Cool Backgrounds

While perusing blogs of favorite artists, I came across a cheesecloth background technique. I thought cool and tried it but wasn't thrilled. Not wanting to give up on the cheesecloth background entirely, I got out my trusty color sprays, in this case Radiant Rains. The top half of the picture shows the first spray through the cheescloth. The bottom half shows a fresh sheet of card stock that's been brayered with the wet cheesecloth after the first spray. Both are equally intriguing but the bottom is my favorite.

The Behinder I get

Well I have to apologize for being slow, or maybe I don't. I blew out my left shoulder and have been living with all kinds of pain. So I'm slower than I'd like getting retreat samples made and posted. I get to have surgery 4 days after the retreat, so I'm thankful I get to do the retreat first. So my blog updates will continue to be sporadic at best. So I'm going to post several items over the next week or two starting with a background technique that's not part of the retreat.
