Step Outside Your Box - color methods




This week at Step Outside Your Box we were challenged to use unconventional methods to color our art work. Since I already had tags and dictionary pages stained with coffee, I started with those. But that was too easy. Next I created a yummy buttery yellow background with tumeric. Then I glazed the leaf stamps with green nail polish. (I had a teen-age daughter not too long ago.)

Love it! Fun to try something new, huh? Tumeric? What a great idea! I also like the musical notes coming out of the bird.

Great idea and a lovely outcome! I've got some daffodil stalks I'm going to mush up, to which I might add some turmeric!! Great minds and all that!!
