Tangle Starts Backgrounds

 I love making backgrounds!
Colorful, textured, fluid and flowing –
it’s all beautiful and it’s all fun!
For the one above, I used 
Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bombay India Inks
and lots of water. 
A heat gun pushed those colors into circles
and lots of runny drips!
Love it!
And believe it or not – I only used three colors!
This background again came from
Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bombay India Inks.
This time I flicked a splatter brush of water
across the surface just before the colors were dry,
then lifted color off the paper with a paper towel.
Love the way this one turned out!
Both these backgrounds are in my new book
If you love colored backgrounds but don’t have
the supplies, or the knowledge, or the time –
this book might be your answer.
You can tangle on the pages,
you can paint or used wet media if you follow
the instructions on Pages 3 and 5,
you can tear the pages out and cut them up to
use as collage art – there are so may ways to
use these backgrounds!
You can see some ways I am using my copy 
here and here.
And you see some of the inside pages
by clicking on “See all 2 images.”
Have a great week creating!
