Try it Tuesdays!

I was searching for altered book groups on Flickr last night and found a link to the coolest blog, Try it Tuesdays. Every Tuesday, a new art technique is demonstrated for everyone to try. There’s even a drawing for prizes every week, too! Here’s my first attempt at Karyn Gartel’s Easy Acrylic Backgrounds. What fun!!! Check out the Flickr group for some really yummy eye candy. And join in…

In the first sample, I used Karyn’s painting techniques on a gessoed page from a blank book of handmade paper that I purchased years ago.




In the sample below, I applied Karyn’s techniques to a page that had been previously collaged with torn papers.
