Raid your local wallpaper store

Today's inspiration - wallpaper! Visiting our local decorating store to buy paint, I found a free box of wallpaper samples. As the papers were highly textured, I was immediately thinking of using them for printing.
Below is a background made from a wallpaper sample. It was created by using masking fluid painted over the wallpaper and then pressed onto paper. I then did a water colour type wash (if you use acrylics be careful as they can seal the masking fluid to the paper if not diluted enough). The photo shows the masking fluid not yet removed. I was really pleased with the final lacy effect.
