No need to use Gesso to "prime" your art journal page when using this background cleverly created with masking tape!  Just tear small strips (1 to 2 inches in length) and overlap to cover your entire page.  This creates a great texture!  What's next is up to you, but I used orange and blue acrylic paint to cover my page. I cut my silhouette from a magazine, then used several stamps and black ink to add a bit of interest.  I also used white acrylic paint on a stamp for that "bubble wrap" look.  A snippet from the dictionary and computer-generated title and I was done!  Here is the result:

For those who have missed me, I have been recuperating from a complex spine surgery.  I have always believed that art is healing, so I have now added some creativity into the healing mix!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a note so that I'll know you were here!
