Back grounds for My Soul Journal

These are just some of the background papers I am making for my Soul Journal. I find that every time I do a project I am going to use some of the paint or ink to make a background sheet. This has been a lot of fun. With the hustle and bustle of the Holidays it can be hard to concentrate on any one thing for very long. Making these backgrounds has been a creative release. Just lay down some card stock, watercolor paper, canvas paper and let the paint and or ink fly.. You will feel really good when you are finished.

Leftover acrylic paint and ink applied with various tools to card stock.

Acrylic paint on cardstock. Applied with credit card.

Acrylic paint on bristol board, applied with five inch bristle brush.

Dictionary text glued to cardstock. Then acrylic paint applied with foam brush over punchilla - sequin waste. Layers and layers of paint applied over a period of time. Build up layers slowly.

Sprayed inks on dry water color paper.
