Ok so I’m always interested in ideas for the backgrounds of pieces.
“How do these people come up with these things?” is often heard coming from my mouth when I’m online and the kids say “Uh oh Mum’s talking to the computer again!”
I’m just in awe of some of the back grounds and I wish I were more adventurous so this week I decided to try. I’ve been enrolled in the Strathmore Online course for journalling for a while but I kept losing the page and finally I started to go there and this week we learnt some new back ground techniques.

This particular bit was from Workshop 2 in week 2.
Linda showed us how to use stencils simply made ones, so one I liked was a piece of curtain fabric.
Basically you use a piece of curtain fabric and spray it lightly with water-colour, well actually it doesn’t HAVE to be water-colour but it’s what I used. I’m really happy with the effect I got with the curtain.
