Blow Bubbles Anyone...?

Blowing Bubbles Technique -painted paper backgrounds with dish soap

I was wanting to explore a little...
and create some interesting looking paper backgrounds.
I have used in the past 
dripping, 
splattering, 
and 
blowing techniques 
to create textured paper.
Today...
 I wanted to take a different approach.
Blowing Bubbles
Now this was a whole of fun!
Who doesn't like blowing bubbles?
2 parts liquid dish soap / 1 part (warm) water
Add acrylic ink
(10 droplets- more the deeper the color)
Stir mixture.
Use a flexible drinking straw and blow until bubbles reach over top of glass.
Press paper over top.
Continue process.


Have fun...
and go blow some bubbles today.
Happy Tuesday!
