It's no secret that I love rich, saturated color. Generally, my backgrounds are composed of many layers. They usually start with a few "blobs" of acrylics or watercolors dropped and swirled onto cardstock or a substrate, and the "layering process" begins.
Working in a hospital setting has led me to new discoveries and a search for quick methods. There's not a lot of time, material or space to create, and I've found that the old adage: "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." applies.
The background of "Chrysaline" was created by using a color copy of one of my original backgrounds as a base to which I've added more paints, stamps and colors. I'm saving time and energy by using what I've already created in a new, re-purposed way. It's a win-win situation!
