A Second Layer of Paint

For this second layer, I am using blue and yellow acrylic paint.  I put a generous drop of each on my plastic plate and pick it up with a putty knife again.  In this way, I add a fresh layer of color to the postcards, each a bit different.

A couple of these postcards have a darker blue stripe.  This is some masking tape I used while printing a quilt - the tape was used as a mask as I printed, and some of the printing got onto the tape.  Since it had color and texture - I added it to some of the postcards in the group.

Enjoying this step-by-step very much!

Creative play time is close to non-existent around here this week, but I've managed to cut and gesso a few pieces of junk mail in snared brief minutes here and there.
