I love browsing artist blogs and you-tube. I learn something new almost every day! This tip came from Lisa Cyr's blog on what she does with leftover paint. Make your own art paper! I love the idea because 1) it saves your money in paint and 2) it's fun to do! and most importantly 3) it's so much more green not to rinse unused, toxic paint down the drain.
All you have to do is wad up some tracing paper or light copy paper and have fun painting it. I made all these beautiful papers today from leftover paint. Another thing I discovered today - Antiquing gel. It works great to add depth.
