I've never been much on saving the paper towels that I painted on, or baby wipes I used to clean this or that. Mine really never looked worth saving. They looked more like muddy colors all globbed together. BOY do these babies sparkle!!!!! You've got to click on them and enlarge to see the wonderful detail that I had nothing to do with!!! Just luck...
But recently, while using my
to create the pieces for my classes, I discovered some really gorgeous backgrounds on the large cardboard pieces I used. The reddish spots are just reflections and are actually black...I have no idea how that came about. This is before I sprayed the flowers.
They can't be cut up and put into a collage, or used as background papers, because they are, after all, just corrugated cardboard.....and wouldn't last well I'm afraid. But the thought did occur to me after I stepped back and saw the random creations that were there.
The metallic gold and blues are over the tops of the flat deep blue colors on the boards. The flowers and wings combine into gorgeous patterns. This is after I sprayed the flowers.
Just thought I'd share before I sprayed something else and lost the beauty here.
Still waiting for spring........
rain, rain, and more rain....
would love some sunshine for a change.
A good day to CREATE ART, don't you think?
