Mixed Media on Monday
I wanted to share the process of making some background papers with you this week. I’m going to use & share the projects I create with these homemade papers upcoming posts. Making your own backgrounds can work for a lot of your projects including, collage, cardmaking and scrapbook layouts.
I grabbed my paintbox and got to work. I added some colour with my hands on one paper, I used the old door card again on the other sheet.
Below you can see the first couple of layers of paint I added. I got out some stencils, a brayer, molding paste, and some other tools to create some texture.
Below you can see both of the complete papers. In real life, you can still see the original pattern on the paper and on the page on the right the pattern was almost completely covered.
Stayed tuned for some projects using these papers on January 30th.
