In a Scrape GPP Crusade #44

It is getting down to the due date again, and finally I got my act together.  This crusade was all about laying down paint on a page without a brush, just using an old credit card or scraper.

I have a limited number of paints and I pulled out some favorites, peridot and purple and what a dreary mess that created. It was metalllic but oh so bad. I had done this method before and I thought I was quite successful but obviously, I needed to reread the instructions.

So today, (Saturday) I took those dreary papers and put down some white gesso first. This time I had a spatula handy and some childrens crayola paints. I am much happier with the results.You can still see some of the old paint in the background and some of the glitter paint I used shows as well, although my camera can’t capture it.  My computer has been in the shop. So couldn’t upload the post until today.

Once again, I thank Michelle for making a crusade for us to play with, anyone can join in at any time.  After last month, with the text messaging crusade, I find my self cutting out words to keep for another project.
