Often times I will take blank pages in my art journal and cover them quickly with color and pattern.
Eliminates the "blank page" syndrome
where I sit and look at the white page and don't know
what direction to go in.
Later when I go back and am ready to work I have pages already to go.
This page is covered randomly with book text and Gel Medium.
Distress inks were rubbed directly onto the paper and the color was spread
with a wet paintbrush.
The Gel Medium resists the inks and creates a varied color depth for the background.
Here is the page I created later on the
pre made background.
(still loving my new Rebekah Meier stencil)
An old sticker from Club Scrap...
And rub ons from my stash...
Some stamping also with a piece of
corrugated cardboard and acrylic paint.
Finally some flowers were drawn across the page using a white gel pen.
Sometimes it's fun to pull out pre made backgrounds and go to town.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
