More Background Noise: Paint Scraping

Big thanks to Trish (see previous post), as this technique is very messy and one of my perennial favorites.

Squirt paints (I used a variety of acrylics) directly on paper (here, a mix of cold-press watercolor paper, canvas paper and cardstock), and scrape on and around with an old credit card. In some cases, I did a second scraping or even smooshing of the same colors with a fresh piece of paper.


  1. Oooooh! Im in love! Your backgrounds are amazing! Such colour depths and movements! Fanflippingtastical!

  2. Autumn - Your paint scrappings look wonderful; love the colors!!
