Backgrounds


I've been working on backgrounds. Inspired by Yahoo group challenges, I've created these three. They are all in my book journal and will be further embellished. This one is for a winter colors theme. It's mostly overspray on a page from Barron's.



This one has a fancy store bag from a card shop as the base. I used a noodle brush (silicone pastry brush) to paint on a thin layer of acrylic paint and gesso.



The black base on this one was an accident. I scanned something that came out pitch black, so I used it for a background. I painted some random patterns with acrylic. Then I "noodled" over it with the same colors. Finally, I used a doily as a stencil in one corner.



Three easy and quick backgrounds.

Loved your picassa head and loved how your backgrounds turned out - even from your mistake you created a really cool background "There are no mistakes in art"
HAPPY NEW YEAR
