Ink spots!





I was coerced...I mean...I joined a swap for melted crayon backgrounds. This was a very good friend of mine's first swap! We used crayons which were melted onto the background. Then whatever image showed up, that's what we needed to refine and paint/draw/do whatever needed to bring forth! I realize that once I've painted this and shown you the result, you can tell what it was supposed to be. But my gosh, in their raw form, I had an incredibly hard time reading these crayon melted ink spots!! I mean, I ended up doing 32, yes, you read right, 32 backgrounds before 3 spoke to me. Thankfully, these two were very easy for me to spot and bring forth. The other, well, let's say I'm going to have 29 backgrounds for something! I had an extremely hard time letting go of the leopard. If anyone knows of where I can join therapy for letting go of one's art...point me the way.

wow, i bet you would do well on the Rorschach test. you'd make amazing things with their inkblots!
A fun swap would be to swap some of your blob backgrounds to a friend and get them to design ATcs to send back to you. Though I'm sure they' have a hard time too!
Great ATCS

These are too cool! I tried doing backgrounds with melted crayons and I just ended up with a big muddled mess! I really dig the leopard.
