My Favorite Mixed Media Backgrounds




Ciao, dear readers..
and now I can call you..
viewers...
as well..



I wanted to focus on Art Journaling..
and since it is a HUGE topic..
I thought I would start with

backgrounds..





it seems to be a good starting spot..
I will look forward to sharing about images, transfers,
prompts and everything art journaling...
but it is impossible to cover the whole subject in one little video...

so this is a beginning...

enjoy and let me know if you have
any questions..

C4N!

I was in awe of your final technique. I've never been able to "marry" two pieces together like this before. I'll have to try this. Thankfully, I knew about the other three techniques you used, but of course, the gesso with fluid acrylic is my favorite. Thanks for taking the time to do this. Believe me, I know how time consuming it is.

E, you are so right, it takes me a ton of time to prepare and get things organized, but I have gotten so many kind remarks and so I keep working on it. Remember that the page color is what you are trying to come close to matching, unless it is very dark of course, and use a lot of glaze. X
