Hi everyone, Mou Saha here. Here’s a tutorial on creating an art journal background.
So, let’s get started. I used an old book here.
Apply a coat of white Gesso. Let dry.
Add colors with Gelatos®.
Layer a stencil and apply more color with Gelatos® and blend with wipe.
Ink a stamp with a Stamper's Big Brush Pen and stamp a border along the right edge.
Since I plan on writing and adding images to this spread, I’ll leave the background as is at this point so it doesn’t interfere with my art journaling.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and will give this a try.
