No, I’m not refinishing any furniture or painting walls…
I’m scraping acrylic paint using an old credit card on Canson mixed media paper:
And adding Posca paint pens…
I learned this technique recently from Carla Sonheim.
And then I took it a step further:
Yep, I added bubble wrap and the above texture tool to create; Three Pomegranates:
One experiment led to another…
And I discovered that I could use bubble wrap like a stamp… dipping it into the paint and then adding it to the paper. If I let the wet paint partially dry, and scraped fresh paint across, it gave a wonderful resist.

I layered several colors in each of these experiments with Golden’s Fluid Acrylic Paints. I also experimented by adding some gold iridescent paint.
I liked the end result of scraping an old credit card across my paper. It created an unsuspected surprise!
Yesterday, I experimented with a more abstract design:
All my papers are 11×14 inches in size. They will make wonderful collage materials!
Who knows where tomorrow’s art experiment will take me?!
Thank YOU for joining me in my art studio today!
