What’s in a paint blot?

What’s in a paint blot?

I just spent some time playing along with Sandee over on the Frosted Designs blog for her weekly Sunday’s with Sandee.  This was a fun one and I’ve been wanting to try this for some time now.  I took four colors (prob should have only used three, but oh well) and poured a little bit of paint into the bottom of some small containers I have and added some water to make them a bit more watery.  I poured small puddles on one side of my page in random pools and closed the book and sort of squished it.  When I opened it, I thought the page was very cool and I realized the paint had gone sort of muddy in one small spot prob cause I used too many colors…..ooppsss.  I still loved it and just how the paint formed sort of to the middle of the two pages, it kind of looked like a butterfly to me.  Check it out…



I lightly sketched a butterfly onto the pages and then went over with a Faber-Castell PITT artist pen and colored in the outside edges of the wings.  I doodled in some circles and decided it was done.  I found my quote and tried my hand at some creative lettering again.   I’m really having some fun with that technique as well…..thank you Sandee!!

Thanks so much for dropping in….I sooo appreciate it!  ❤
