Creative Summer Camp: Playing with Bubbles

To prevent falling is a creative gap during the summer, I have signed up for Marit's Creative Summer Camp. It is an online group where the participants can work on easy and fun assignments during the summer without being obligated. I haven't done as much as I hoped to, but I have had much fun with a simple technique for creating backgrounds. And all you need is ink and soap, basically :)


These are a few of the backgrounds I made which I used to make several things. I also used this technique to make the background for my July calendar pages. I totally did something different this time around regarding the calendar, and it takes me a bit of getting used to since I drew free form instead of cutting shapes for my calendar like I usually do. And while I see room for improvement, I am glad I dared to experiment. This is the result:


For more calendar pages, please visit The Kathryn Wheel :) I will also share a bookmark that I made and a page that I filled for the Round Robin Project. I used a Jip and Janneke card which I found very fitting for the background.



I really loved playing with bubbles and it will be a technique that I will be using more often. I like it especially for the bookmarks. Luckily I made a few backgrounds in one go, so I have more to experiment with :) I hope I tickled your curiosity with this and if you want to participate in the Summer Camp, it is open till the 15th of August, so come and play ;)

  7. leuk idee, ik vind de onderste erg mooi!
    ja, zo'n kleine bijeenkomst voor het boekje was erg fijn, kun je toch een paar gezichten zien achter het boekje (achter de schermen!)
