Mixed Media Monday - Bingo

Seems I am having trouble managing to be a regular participant in the various weekly challenge blogs this year! BUT tonight I made an entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday as the theme is "Bingo" and I have a favourite bingo stamp that I haven't actually used a lot!

The background is a scrap piece of paper that I used to clean off all the extra paint I had on my brush last week when painting a canvas. I spread the paint really thin by scraping it with a discarded credit card. Nice and bright - deep hot pink and orange! This was my first go at painting swirls freehand using my new favourite paint - Golden's Iridescent Bright Gold (Fine) Liquid Acrylic. I'll use a finer brush next time.

And something I have been meaning to show ever since I got back from Melbourne - this is a prize I won on the wonderful Rachel Greig's blog - terrific products, and included in there, although not very visible in this scan, are a couple of sheets of photo booth images.

PS I just came across this site (about women artist entrepreneurs) as a result of following a link from Alicia Paulson's blog - I have only read Alicia's "story" so far but I will definitely be going back there and working my way through all of the stories of those women - fascinating stuff!!
