Step Outside Your Box Saturdays - Unconventional Colouring



This was the challenge for "Step Outside Your Box Saturdays" this week:


This week I want you to get unconventional, use coffee or tea, or if you’re so fortunate to have grass available on this March the 1st, grass stains. I bet there’s lots of ways to stain, or color your work with out using markers, pencils, crayons, ink, or paint. You just have to think Outside the Box, I can’t wait to see what you all do!!!


I thought long and hard about ways that I colour that are unconventional and "outside the box" and I immediately landed on mica. I have a love affair with the stuff and love how it gives a beautiful sepia colour to everything that sits underneath it.
