Art day today

I've been experimenting with odd things while I'm cleaning the studio today. The first photo is of some ATCs that I made with my old grocery plastic bag that I use for texturizing acrylic paints and for moving paints from one painting to another. I decided I liked it well enough to make an art piece out of it, so I glued it to watercolor paper with acrylic gel medium. When it was dry I cut it into ATC size pieces.

The second photo is of an old watercolor painting that I painted over with white paint. While it was wet (and I had to move fast) I scratched into the surface. Then I thought I'd go over it again with a glaze and scratch back to some of the white. Here are the white birches that appeared.

Wow after reading that those weren't paintings of birch trees and they were really floral tissue paper I about fell outta my chair. That's amazing and that turned out fantastic!!!
