I used a foam brush to cover some of the page spread with both yellow & bright green Dye-Na-Flow. This paint is thin like a dye, although it truly is a paint, by Jacquard.
Then I used a paint brush to splatter some bright pink Dye-Na-Flow on top.
I also painted the pink on with a brush . . .
I dripped more yellow on top . .. .
. . . and found out later it seeped through to my previous spread.
I actually really liked this and thought it made the spread much better!
The wet paint also seeped through to the spread on the next page!
I decided to leave that page as it was but add a coat of citrine Lumiere paint, also by Jacquard,
to the facing page. I used a larger brush this time because I wanted the texture of the bristles.
My finished second spread background. I have added a bit of washi masking tape in pink and orange that were on my table and waiting to be used. Click for more details.
A scan of the first background spread -this took 10 minutes or less to complete.
Now I have 2 spreads that are started. The background is done and it will be easy to add more! It felt fine to me to stop there. I will take this with me this weekend and in between sailing to an Island and visiting with new friends I am sure there will be some down-time for me to add something and play creatively. I have already re-packed my little travel art kit That I have not used in so long. I will share what I did in my journal when I return. No computer on this trip, so that means no email for me and no approving comments, etc. Feel free to write in if you like and I will publish anything & catch up with you when I return on Sunday evening.

Have a great weekend! I am enjoying doing this, it is really good for me, and think everything will work out for me to continue. yay!
