Take It Further, Class

Here are the fabrics I've chosen to do the June TIF Challenge using the color scheme chosen by Sharonb http://sharonb.wordpress.com/ I'm not sure what I'll make.
Here are some of the papers I made for lesson 1/2 of the Mixed Media Journaling Techniques class given by Sueb http://suebleiweiss.typepad.com They are marbled on a base of shaving cream. The top is the first print; the bottom is a print of the paint left after the first one is lifted off. I was using Dyna-a-flow paint.

Here are 2 more papers. It hard to stop, and I did 17 pages before I ran out of room to dry them, and the marbling cream became muddy. To make sure the paper came in good contact with the paint, I gently rubbed the back of the paper when it was on the cream. In marbling whatever touches the paint first is what gets the color. If there is an air pocket, no paint will be there.

I love your papers! I can see that it would be addicting.

That's an interesting color scheme for tif. It's a very sophisticated palette.

These came out great. It's fun to see how they actually come out because you can't tell ahead of time.
