I'm Leila here, to show you one of my favorite techniques; Creating a textured background.
I think it's a cool effect on our projects and we can have a lot of fun in the process of playing with paints and brushes.
It's a simple tutorial, I hope you enjoy and have fun!
1-First separate the materials:
- 1 sheet scrapbooking paper
- 1 sheet of an old book
- acrylic paint
- spray ink (like Glimmer Mist)
- modeling paste or acrylic resin
- spatula or old credit card
- manuscript stamp
- black Stazon ink
note: I used Brazilian brands, but I'm sure you can find similar substitutions in your country.
2- Now let's spread the modeling paste on the scrap paper:
3-When finished the paper should look like this:
4- Tear small pieces of book paper and place them randomly on the page; no glue needed.
5- Then spread the modeling paste over them:
6- With a brush spread the acrylic paint at various points of the page, wherever you like it!
7- Now, use your glimmer mist:
8- Load the manuscript stamp with Staz On ink, and apply where you like it. Observe the effect...
9- Now leave it to dry and then it's ready to decorate!
Here's my finished page :
And here are other examples with texture backgrounds...
I hope you like and enjoy it!
