GPP Street Team Crusade #29

#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.


The next step was to dry brush colours over it. paint-2I’m pleased with how it turned out – now I’m off to journaL it and I might do another page in my other journal – stay tuned. In the mean time go check out the Crusade blog and the other crusaders.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Lovely mono-print bursts ! Excellent brush effects, Megan !

    Cheers to your third Crusade ! It is easy to get addicted to a good thing like this, isn’t it ?

    Have a great weekend !
