A Crazy Background!

crazy 1

The Saturday work out is crazy backgrounds!

You don't get much more crazy than this one of Tim's!

Sadly I don't have the new bright Adirondack inks yet! But I had great fun recreating the effect all the same.

Tim's demo is here if you want to try it too. crazy 2

This green one was done with a can of air like Tim uses. I made that yesterday with Graham's can of air at Hels' ... but please don't tell him because that is a secret!

The top one was done with a straw and a bit of puff ... see ... not the right inks or equipment and I still managed ... How crazy is that :0))

Now I am not sure whether to turn them into cards or not ... I may just frame them ... I like the effect that much!
