Painted Papers, gift

On Wednesday a friend and I painted paste papers. You use thickened paint and texture it in a variety of ways. For the first one, I put a stencil on it and lifted some of the paint with a paper towel. Then I put more paint on it through the stencil using another color. 
The second one just had leaves stencilled on it in a second color.Bubble wrap pressed into the wet paint made the circles.After putting the stencil on this one, I lifted some of the paint with a paper towel then scraped the background with a comb.

I like the pattern made by scraping a comb through the paint.

See what she gave me- a piece of fused glass that she made. It has a channel in the top for a cord. I want to design a necklace using it. The colors are much more vibrant in person. Altogether a pleasant day.

These are lovely! It reminds me so much of grade school fingerpainting that I can almost smell the paint. ;)

What a great day you had Sandy! I remember doing that when I was a child using combs and carboard with cut edges, but never using stencils like that. That's the grown up way of doing it so I must have a go!
The colours in your glass are lovely too.

Your papers are beautiful! I want to get into my studio and dig out some paints and paper!

Also, very pretty glass piece.
