is the challenge for this week’s inspire me thursday… this is where we were supposed to use paint & only paint as our medium… i used nancy’s acrylic paint technique using an old credit card (except in my case, i used a piece of chipboard)…these two pieces here look aquatic to me (above & below)…particularly the second piece>>> reminds me of a lochness-type creature!
then my herb society friend, elsa, told me about this art class where she learned to make backgrounds using shaving cream & acrylic paints…i thought i’d give it a whirl…& these are my attempts!
this was kinda fun to do…reminded me of the time i worked with preschool kiddos & one of their art projects was this very activity, painting with shaving cream & tempura paints! but, i think next time i try this, i think i better buy some unscented shaving cream bec. the shaving cream i used here stunk to high heaven! pee-yew! Posted by Picasa
