How Can I Resist...

I've been experimenting with different surface design techniques on paper.  Here are some resist technique results.

water color and saran wrap

acrylic paint and saran wrap

acrylic paint and white glue

water color and freezer paper

water color, acrylic paint and rubber cement

There are many more resist techniques I plan to try.  I will continue to post the results.

Visit Pink Saturday for more inspiration.

Isn't it fun to experiment with paint, papers and and different mediums? When I was studying watercolor at college, that was one of my favorite things to do. Rice paper and salt is one of my favorites as I love the delicate designs that emerges. I have tried anything with glue.....that will be fun and interesting!
Happy Pink Saturday!
