I'm kind of like a scientist when it comes to bisters.....I keep on experimenting, just sure I am about to make a huge discovery!! Like, how to keep the colors nicely saturated and colorful. For this experiment, I spritzed my water color paper first and then added the crystals. I tried to limit the moisture while still breaking down the crystals. I'm not sure if you can tell, but I feel like this piece has some of the best color separation I've achieved so far---I can't tell you how many pieces started with all the colors and just ended up brown :(
To finish things off, I added a beautiful collage image called Zebra Butterfly Collage. It has just the right amount of open spaces to show off a colorful background!
