Glimmer Mist and Plastic Wrap backgrounds

   I'm at the Creative ART Camp 2011 in Wisconsin (Chrissy's house), with Kathy, Mary, Chrissy, Bev and Margaret. Maggi is ill and couldn't come today : (

Today Margaret got us messy creating background papers and covers for a journal. This is similar to the Watercolor Plastic Wrap Technique.  Generously spray Glimmer Mists (or any dye ink based sprays with mica powders) over watercolor paper. Mix colors as desired. The colors should pool. Cover with plastic wrap and wrinkle/crease it up. Put it aside to dry, before removing the plastic wrap. Then do the reverse side.

Here is one of my papers waiting to dry.
 Here are some of the pages waiting to dry from several of the attendees.
 Here's one of the finished backgrounds. It's hard to see the glimmer in the photo. But these are so cool!
