I'm participating in a background swap on the byhand artists yahoo group. For the swap we needed 4" x 6" pieces of whatever background we chose to do. This picture is of an 8 1/2" x 11" piece which I would cut up and get 3 pieces for the swap along with some left over pieces to use for myself. I started with a piece of dusty purple cardstock, put some bleach in a spray bottle and sprayed randomly on the cardstock, let that dry, dripped some bleach on and let it dry, sprayed the piece with black spray webbing, then sprayed with Adirondack color wash spray stream and Stamp Zia chroma sprays lime, iris, cherry, and olive, and let that dry. To finish it off I sprayed it with gold spray webbing and while the webbing was still tacky pressed on some gold foil here and there. I love making these kinds of backgrounds... they look so complicated but are really very easy to do.
