In a scrape


This month GPP Street Team is getting messy with paint. The suggestion is that we scrape paint onto our pages using old credit cards or the like; definitely no brushes! Now, when I have tried this previously it hasn't been too successful so, clearly, it was time for another go. This time I am quite pleased with the results - I used a different type of paper and also, and I think this is what made the big difference, applied the paint onto a layer or two of gesso. Here are the results. 


  
  

Let me know what you think!

Hi Jackie! Wow, your scraped pages look great. I'm just in love with the textures and variety you can come up with..so cool! I really like the blue combo you have... like underwater marine feel.

I think they are amazing.

Am I allowed favourites? ... it'd be hard to choose but I especially love the third and fourth ones down!

I just love the colours :)

My first reaction is "Oooh...yummy pages!". I cannot choose a favourite. You could leave them as they are or take them further in whatever way pleases you!

Jackie, these pages are beautiful! You have much more patience then I do to layer so many colors.

Jackie - these are fab! Love that you took on this challenge even though you had already done it before, and were pleased with your results. Love the last one the most because it's obvious you kept layering and pulled thick strokes with the face of your tool. Thanks for sharing with the team!

Nice colour combinations - very bold!

i love your pages! i did mine in my art journal, one page is a drawing paper surface, the other was watercolor paper. i definitely liked the drawing paper better for this techniue - wc paper has too much texture for this, IMO. Great job, and the colors are nice!

I particularly like the blue piece, Jacki. It reminds me of a nicely faded pair of jeans -- when they get just the way I like them.

Isn't it interesting how sometimes going back to a technique brings a breakthrough? Love the second one in particular, but think they all work really well.

These are great, you're so productive! I like the second two better, I like the blue/green palatte. -Kim

What great pages!!! I especially like the blue papers.

Jackie Wood said...

Love all of your different examples and color choices. Thanks for sharing.

Great result, I think it is wise to use gesso first. I didn't and the paint really goes through the paper.

Hi Jackie:

I was looking for your SPA entry but this page came up.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hi Jackie,

I really love your pages, especially the second one with those colours. The gesso really makes a difference doesn't it. Thanks for sharing.
