After creating the first art journal page, I decided to experiment with backgrounds. After watching hours and hours of youtube tutorials and buying basic materials….
I tried stencilling with gesso as well as with modelling paste. Not sure which I like better.
I also wanted to experiment with adding dimension; hence the basket weaving created with thin strips of card stock, something I have seen on youtube. This is probably my favourite bit of this page
I bought a PITT big brush marker to create highlights; they are recommended by just about every crafter on YouTube. Not very happy about the highlights but I have played it around with it subsequently and am finally beginning to have fun with it.
I don’t have a quote for this one – I didn’t feel it needed it.
