Rusted background

I ran across a new background technique on Judy Scott's blog while surfing the web for something else. I have visited her blog several times and love her work in textiles and was not aware that she did other art work.

Anyway, since this looked very interesting I decided to give it a try. I used acrylic paints and the colours I chose are darker than the ones in the pictures of the technique shown Judy's blog and maybe I got too heavy handed with the paint. However I enjoyed doing this and will be experimenting more with lighter and more vibrant colours or watercolours.

Here are the ones that I worked on today.
