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.
