CBH Challenge April 27th Spatter

I had sooooo much fun doing these spatter backgrounds. Plus getting it on the surrounding areas that was not so good - BIG GRIN.
This week's Created By Hand Challenge is to do something with spattering and blobs - had to be larger than misting...
I did 5 backgrounds all at the same time, putting various types of paper on the inside walls of a cardboard box (as well as the bottom) and then just splattering away with a thick brush and all kinds of inks, acrylic paints and water and other stuff. Took them out of the box and continued distressing and adding other layers like rubber stamping etc.


Click on any of the images to see the full sheet for that background, details and close ups et
c. I've uploaded 3 of the 5 backgrounds so far, with a total of 5 cards.

Yogi, your work with blobs and spatters is fantastic. I love how you put your paper in a box and it still sprayed outside. I had stuff everywhere myself, but it was so much fun. I can tell you had a great time doing this beautiful work.
