Go with the flow
Force nothing
Let it happen...
trust that whichever way it goes
it's for the best.

background 73/100


Hello,

Gosh, it has been a while since I've been here.
This time not only no action on my blog, but also in the craft room.
But I feel the tide is turning.

Still working on my background challenge,
still loving it,
because it is so freeing; 
I don't need to worry about what to create, 
what the finished piece needs to look like,....
And in some or even the most cases the outcome is almost a finished page.


Here you can see some step by step pictures of the creation of background #73:

background 72/100

Hello,

With the next background I went a bit on the geometry tour.
I used some stencils, sprayink and acrylic paint.


Next I gessod all over it, knowing that the inks would spread.


In the lines I suddenly saw a big arrow, which I painted black,
this led to the arrow stamps, the stars are in the same set, hence the stars.


I gave it a nice glow with some gold interference paint. Hard to capture on photo though, but I think you can see a glimpse of it.
I'm not sure of the center image, thinking of a globe instead, we'll see how this ones evolves (probably I will need to do a follow up on the 100 backgrounds, 100 finished pages J)

background 71/100

Hello,

my 81th post this year,
one more already than all 2016,
next goal: 97 (posts in 2015)

I started out with just putting some random things on the page: 
collage with paper scraps and some stencilling


Next the acrylic paints came out to play


I like the yellow and the bold colors,
but they don't seem to work together very well,
so I obscured the bold lettering with a magazine clipping


better, after some more fiddling with oil pastels it looks like this


















I see a silhouette of a face in the left corner (though not very visible on the picture)

Hello,

It's been a while,
not that I've not been crafting,
just not been blogging.

My next background in the series is very grungy,
It started out with this black and white collage



and evolved into this

I think this would be a good base for a masculin card.

hello,

I painted these rectangles with some leftover blue paint from previous page.
I chose rectangles in contrast with the circles from that page.




















Colored the rectangles with a yellow and orange posca pen.



















added some more color with acrylic paint and pattern with a background stamp.



















some white acrylic paint and doodling to finish.

background 68/100

Hello and welcome,

With no clue on how to start the next backgound, 
I just grabbed the toiletrol that was on my desk and used it to stamp some circles on my page. 


















I was thinking of the ocean so I colored some circles blue and in between the circles a different hue of blue.


















The blank circles suddenly screamed yellow,
so I needed to silence that voice J


















After some stamping, doodling and some white acrylic paint the background turned into this
