Backgrounds Completed


Here are a couple of backgrounds that I completed, loosely following Suzan Buckner's background tutorial. I did have to dry my paper every so often because I'm not using as luscious a paper as she is; I'm using index stock and it's just not the same quality as the expensive watercolor paper she's using. My paper tore from the moisture if I didn't dry it out once in a while. I also didn't wipe my gesso'd credit card on my shirt, but on a paper towel instead! I still think the backgrounds came out okay. I'm eager to try this technique on canvas -- I have three blank canvases waiting for something to happen to them.

oh!! These are totally COOL!! I love the way they turned out..umm..could you do a tutorial, so that I can do them??? **smile..

They are beautiful!!

The dabbers are Ranger Inks replacement dabbers. My scrapbook store special orders them for me, but I bet you can find them at Ranger.com.
