Backgrounds to use in Journaling
For our Journaling meet up I thought we would practice some techniques for creating interesting backgrounds for our journal pages.
I will bring some examples for you to see and if you want to you can try some of the techniques on your own.
I suggest we work on mixed media or water color paper in sheets no larger than 5 x 7, I think most of mine are 4 x 6. If you'd rather not work on paper you can always bring art board or a small canvas.
Below is the list of supplies I used. Don't feel like you have to bring every medium on the list, just one you want to try. Or better yet bring a medium I don't have listed and we'll learn even more. You can even pick something up at the store when you get there.
Heavy matte gel
Coarse Molding paste
Mod Podge – Matte Medium/Glossy Accents also works.
Rubber stamps and ink (Script or texture type)
Paint or Foam brushes
Paper plate or palette to hold paints and medium
Stencils, plastic mesh or plastic stencils
Magazine or other pictures to use on the page
If I think of anything else I will post a comment.
