PAINTED BACKGROUNDS

Recently in my blog and web site hopping I came across a great mixed media web site called Mixed Media Art
One of the projects there is on painted backgrounds. Looked and sounded like FUN so I decided to make some time on the weekend and have a play and below are three examples of my "playtime". I really enjoyed making them and will definitely be experimenting more with the technique. Think I will print these scanned backgrounds out and then I can cut them up and use them on cards, ATCs, in my altered books and journal pages also.
