Over Patterned Backgrounds.
Several weeks ago our little mixed media group got together and made printed pages from cardboard tubes wrapped with a variety of bits and bobs. We rolled the tubes into acrylic paint and then onto our papers. Our plan was to create beautiful textured backgrounds to use in our journals and for future projects. We succeeded in making a variety of prints and textures. I immediately could see faces and pictures within the shapes on my paper and so I decided to draw into the patterns.
This is what I came up with.
I am disappointed I did not take photos of the papers my friends made, they were wonderful.
