HAND PAINTED PAPER UP DATE ON THIS POST : I put thinned down craft paint in a small plastic spray bottle from WM and sprayed this paper, then mushed it around a bit. Then stamped it with a dragon fly pattern. Added some dip dots also. I like the way it turned out. This one was panted with old credit card. I drew some hearts on and splashed on some gold paint.

Squares done with the credit card technique again, I like using the credit card because it covers a large area and fast.I will stamp and do some more to this paper. You all should try painting some of these papers to use, in your art work and even scrap booking. If they curl a little on you , then just iron them a little. With a dry iron, not steam.

PEARL SMITH ALTERED ART ARTIST : I went to the Strawberry Festival here in Melbourne yesterday. I enjoyed the event and met a couple neat ladies. This first artists is Pearl Smith a local altered art artist She had a booth full of framed collages and other painted altered art. She is doing some things with "the girls" she learned how to paint on the Internet. Kinda like I am trying to do, but hers are much better than my early attempts. lol I hope to be able to get with her so we could work on some art together. What I really would like to do is get a group going or join up with such a group. Anyone living in Melbourne Fl and would like to do this feel free to contact me. ONE OF PEARL'S COLLAGES
