Well to jump start my creative juices again and find what speaks to me, I have given myself permission to play, yup just play! To grab whatever I fancy and see what happens.
Well I grabbed my lovely FW Acrylic Inks (I just so love the pearlescent ones) a pad of watercolour paper and water. In some cases I put down a layer of water first and in another just painted straight onto the paper. Let it all dry and then twisted and turned (the paper not me!) to see what I could find.
I have shown what I think is the the best one first, just to entice you (heh heh) which incidentally was my third page. This definately did not need a before and after pic and I just love how it turned out. I dropped the paint straight from the little glass pipettes that are in the bottles onto the paper and let it mix. My original vision was for some pear shapes, but what a surprise.
The is the second using a brush to paint and drop paint.
And the third, I saturated the paper and dropped paint on it.
What do you see in them both?
This is what I found!
I found this playing around to be such fun and quite liberating. Why not try it for yourself?
