Welcome to another in my "How To" series - the second Tuesday of every month. To see past posts click here.
Here's a quick and easy technique for creating background papers that will be very usable because of their subtle tone-on-tone design. All you need is paper (I like to use good quality card stock or color copy paper), white gesso, some cosmetic sponges, a paintbrush, baby wipes, some stamps and black archival ink. (Check out all my favorite products here.)
Here's an under-5-minute video showing the process!
You can also watch "Create Quick and Easy Background Papers" on YouTube.
This way, you'll have all the supplies you need when your muse is visiting and you're creating! Here are two art journal pages I created with my papers and punches.
I hope this tutorial is helpful to you, and that you'll check back again for more in the "how to" series!
