Day off

I can tell I had the day off. I have been on and off the computer all day, but in between computing, I did manage to make a fabulous mess. I present exhibit A:

This is a painted paper towel. Is it not one of the most beautiful messes ever? As I said before, I'm a water baby. I love the colors of the water and the feelings those colors bring out in me. Peace, silence. Ah....

This was very much fun. I took fabric paints (Setacolors) and dripped them onto very wet paper towels. Then I wrapped the towel up, wrapped it in a plastic grocery bag and twisted like crazy. I laid it out and let it dry in the sun and got this!

I don't know what to do with it, but I will enjoy looking at it. I am moving to fabric next. I've never done tie-dye, but if it's as easy as this, I know I'll enjoy that too.
