Fun Technique

Please go check out the new sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge - #155!

For my birthday a friend gave me a copy of the Spring edition of Card Maker, and on pages 60-62 Sara Nauman described several techniques for creating backgrounds that sounded like fun. In this one you put water based ink on an acrylic block, spritz and then roll a breyer over it and then apply to smooth paper.  I loved how it looked and that was the inspiration for using this week's sketch at AHSC.

Just love the dramatic marble effect!
