The latest ATC challenge over on Arts in The Cards is “Indigo”. We had to use the color or word/name in our card. Mine are on paper rather than cloth with indigo mulberry paper, oriental writing and oriental brush painting.
I tried using gel glue to make a raised brush painting of bamboo that I was going to rub with indigo stamping ink. It didn’t raise enough when it dried. So I painted over it with the thought of doing something different. Imagine my surprise when the glue areas became opaque with the wash of cream acrylic. Happy accident!! But, the glue didn’t flow well enough to do a great brush painting but I think these have a soft calm look to them anyway. I could see this done on a wall in place of wall paper….maybe in my next life when I have lots of time.
