February inspiration by Cathy McClelland with Green Lorikeets
This was the painted inspiration for this months challenge over at...
I love the challenges because it is really up to the individuals how the painting moves them to create.
I immediately thought of the shaving cream technique I have recently viewed online somewhere, and wanted to give it a go.
Step one cheap old shaving cream in a baking dish big enough for your 12 x 12 card stock. Smooth top over with an old shop/credit card.
Step 2 drop some acrylic paint into the shaving cream.
Step 3 smooth the paint down with the shop/credit card and then take a wooden skewer and swirl and move your paint around.
Step 4 lay your card stock onto the shaving cream and gently pat down. Then lift off and set aside to dry.
You can do more than one print from your paint application, just add a couple of different colours and swirl around into different shapes. I even tried different coloured car stock.
The more prints you do the subtler the tones become. Once dry scrap off the shaving foam with a flat squeegee or metal ruler.
Print one, this one I used.
Print three, I added some metallic gold paint into this one.
My finished layout
Thanks for looking
