Playing with Acrylic & Watercolour Paints
In truth, I almost stopped mid project on the acrylic page (one on the left) and started over, but I stayed with it. I used the giftcard technique and then a bit of brush work, layer upon layer. My acrylic paints were pretty old & thick (haven't painted with them since back in the days of folk art;). For the watercolour page (on the right) I used the straw technique as the assignment suggested. I finished both pages with a couple of messages that speak to me...I felt like that's all they really needed. I also ripped a few pages out of my journal b/t these 2 facing pages as they are thicker than other pages and I wanted it to close well...I added the taffeta ribbon in the centre to kind of separate the 2 techniques and styles.
