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!
