Bubble background


Hello how are you today? I have been playing with bubbles which is always fun, and this time it was crafting too! I was experimenting with making bubbly backgrounds. I have tried this before without much success. This time was a little more successful, so I thought I would share my discoveries.



I began by putting some inexpensive acrylic paint in a shallow bowl, and adding some fairy liquid and water. I used a straw to blow into the colourful liquid to make bubbles. I soon discovered that I needed a lot more paint, fairy liquid and water than I thought I did. After adding more the bubbles overflowed the top of the bowl, hurrah! I lowered my Mixed Media paper onto the bubbles, but this was not too successful. So I went with a scooping motion, and scooped the bubbles up onto the paper and left them to pop naturally.


This was a lot more successful! I only used red, blue and a purple, but I will try more colours next time. 

I hope I have inspired you to play with bubbles and make some bubbly backgrounds xx

  2. How wonderful Jannet to replicate the blowing of bubbles on your card. I love that technique we used it in large water tanks at nursery, always fun for all ages.
