Challenge 3 – Louise’s Challenge – Smudging

Hi Crafters

Louise here to share my May challenge: Smudging.

That’s right you’re going to have to get those fingers mixed media messy.

I created my background by painting watercolour onto white cardstock. While it was still wet, I smudged the wet colour with white gesso. It gives a kind of ethereal background. The more water you use, the more opaque your colour will become, I let mine dry just a little before I get to smudging.

White Cardstock


49 & Market Rub Ons

Bee Arty Botanical Cut apart pieces

Cocoa Vanilla Studio Patterned paper


Can’t wait to see your smudgy projects.

Happy Scrapping
