#75 on 101 things in 1001 days was to Participate in the GPP Street Team Crusades each month for a year. This is the third month this year that I have participated in Michelle Ward’s Crusades.
So this month we are exploring different brush effects in our journals. In a recent post – I was inspired by a fellow crusader Julie Prichard to try painting with wet brushes and let the paint drip down my page. Usually I use a dry brush, so this was a great learning curve. I have used this type of painting when painting canvases, but not in my journal.
Today I tried applied a blob of paint directly to the page – I used a silicon tool to spread the paint around until I was happy with it and then I pressed another piece of paper to it. I was actually able to make two prints, so this is useful to make aditional journal pages. Each print looks different from the first.

Megan – very cool! Love seeing the two prints, and then with color over it. Thanks for sharing with the team, and for showing us that random blobbing is a great start. And bravo for sticking with #75. xo
I’ve been wanting to try blowing paint around with a straw but wasn’t sure I’d get much of use. This shows be that indeed it can turn out great. Thanks for sharing.
The ink glob is a cool technique! Thank you for sharing!
WOW how cool to start with that splotch! Love your results here too!
Cool! This will make a really fun journal page.
Love this one. Especially the color version.
You’ve got some great colours going there – love the warmth over black.
This is really interresting. I am afraid to experiment in my bound journal, but that’s silly. There’s no reason drips wouldn’t hold up just fine there! I’m going to try it. now…I just have to have the discipline to wait for the drip to dry…
This looks cool! I like the dry colors you used!
What a neat idea, i really like the organic shapes that you achieved with the ink blob…. Keep up the great work..
This is way too cool! Even without adding color, I love the “print”…thanks for sharing! xo..deb
