Hey girlies! Happy Monday! Today I’m gonna show y’all what I did with this wonderful tab page in my Haute Mess journal. I’ve got a bit of a theme going in my journal right now so I’m rolling with it and continuing what I have going on and this is what is on my mind and on my heart so in my journal it goes!
Take a look at the process video for details on how I created this background using a technique I like to call “paint smushing”.
It’s basically adding dashes of paint to your page or canvas then covering it with another paper or in this case I used a sheet of clear acetate so you could see the process take place. You cover the paint with the second sheet of paper and smush it, smoothing it out so the paint can blend and come to the edges a bit. Once you peel the paper up it makes a wonderful blended and textured design.
