Wheww! Vertigo alert! I think I got it creating this one, but y'all know me...more is more! I wish I could restrain myself sometimes, but it never seems to happen! The first background was already done, how easy....but then I decided I didn't like the plain green background, so I painted and stamped with napkin patterns and bubble wrap......wasn't happy with that, so I painted over it again. Wiped off paint layers....I am amazed I didn't tear a hole in it. Painted over it again and ended up being happier with it, but now I covered up most of it, so you can't see it anyway! I have much to learn. I always admire layering that I see in our friends work. Practice, practice practice LOL! Enjoy your afternoon, can't believe it's that time already. I have seen the sun peak out a few times today. I feel better already!

I love your collage - and since a few months, I am practicing the 'paint over and over and over' technique LOL. That's something I really want to do more - before, I only worked on a background in one time... don't know how to explain it right, but you understand what I mean? It seems we always like what we don't have isn't it?!

Hi Marit! Always so good to see you! Thank you so much, yes I do know what you mean. That is exactly what I was talking about. It's funny, as I was wiping off the top layer of paint with a baby wipe, it took on a grungy sorta look, that I ended up liking better than what I started with! You can't see it here, but it was fun playing around with it. I guess I shouldn't worry, there are no mistakes in collage!!
