Shaving Cream and Watercolor Backgrounds

I had a lot of fun making background papers a few days ago. I marbled the first four using drops of paint in shaving cream.









I used watercolor sprays on the next four. I used a Heidi Swapp mask on the first one, blotted the second with paper towels, and covered the third and fourth with cling wrap.

Beautiful. The shaving cream technique is a new one to me but it sure looks nice.

I've used fabric and the shaving cream technique but never paper. What kind of paper did you use? My favs the cling wrap, I must try that.

Hi, Scrappy Cat! Thanks for your visit to my blog and for your encouraging comments.

I see we've both taken SueB's classes. Your journals are wonderful. I like the papers in this post--they look yummy.

You have a potpourri of unique art here. Very nice work. Keep creating, and I enjoy what you share.
