Crusade #45 Back to Back

Michelle’s latest crusade called Back to Back, uses the papers we made last month that we scraped paint with a credit card. So first it was to copy our papers a couple of times and then use these backgrounds in different ways.

Since we have a scanner, I thought no problem, I’ll just scan and print. After a frustrating hour or so and playing with 2 printers,  and 3 colour programs. I had several sheets of coloured paper that bore little resemblance  to the originals. I went off to the local printer a couple of blocks away. I had my new copies that actually matched the originals.

Here is the range of papers, I made, along side the originals.

So in the end, I played with the copies that I had made that didn’t match the originals.

Woven with doodles added.

This page just strips of one page over the other with ink added at the edges.

The pages with red and green, remind me of spawing salmon swimming up river. Here is some information about the salmon returning to the Adams River. I played with using a mask , drew fish, and wrote about salmon.

There are still more pages to play with at a later date. Thanks Michelle, for hosting the crusade again. I love looking at the posts by other bloggers on each crusade and feel now like I am visiting old friends.  Thanks to everyone who has commented on my blog, I love the feedback and appreciate your visits.

    rosemary – sorry you had so much trouble getting color correct copies. but how much fun to have so many papers to play with! Cool idea to create the weaving! Loving the stripes too. I really love your last remark – that visiting fellow crusaders feels like visitng old friends. *smooch*

    It’s obvious you had a fun time playing and experimenting with this crusade. I did, too! I can see the salmon, since you mention them! The weaving and striping are great.

    Love the woven papers, great way to mix it up! I agree that sometimes it’s really hard to get a print that matches the original colors and vibrance!

    Thanks for popping over to my blog and commenting about Crusade #45 with the stenciling and spray paint. It was fun. I am lovin’ the weaving of your papers. What a good idea.

    Love the salmon idea – and all the writing, especially how some of it is obscured. Very cool.
