Grounds by the guidance class crew




My calligraphy guidance class crew had never created grounds before
so here you will see some of my demonstrations and some of their outcomes.  
This was one of the absolute best ways to spend time for all of us.




Paper taped, secure & ready to work upon.



 300gsm Arches cold-pressed (medium) watercolour paper.





 Stonehenge - tan




Masking fluid & rock salt



























Can you believe it - never done grounds before!





Before ... 





... and after










Mushroom clouds and all . . .











Great results and a great deal of fun.  Well done guidance crew!

So delicious Gemma! When I saw some of the images on FB I went looking for the 'love' button! Congrats to all - and there's no stopping them now! Apologies for a multiplicity of exclamation marks...but i do love them!
