I had a great time a few days ago making some painted paper. Actually they are painted torn out book pages! I was preparing a book to be altered and for those of you who may not know about altering books it means you have to tear out about half the pages in the book. Tear a few, leave a few, tear a few, etc. I hate wasting anything so I use the torn out pages to make backgrounds or embellishments for other projects. Sometimes I chop out certain words or cut shapes or, in this case I smooshed acrylic paint around and then doodled with markers and paint pens.
I was loving me some silver paint pens and swirls!
Squiggles and Xs and Os–still feeling the silver vibe!
This one turned out to be my favorite. I love repetitive patterns and colors.
Simple squiggles, lines and dots!
This wasn’t the end for these papers. I used them for another project which I’ll post about next time!
