Backgrounds - How to

umm, how to…errr how I did anyway

Using a sheet of white copy paper I applied a very watery brown wash with a sponge brush. It gave the paper a sort of streaked effect. I then did the same thing with a super pale pink.

I used a white china marker to trace a stencil.

Then followed that with a green wash.

And ended up with this for Dede’s ongoing - background paper swap’age. One from Set No 7 on Flickr.

Happy  Arting
