How I made my background!

Hey everyone Laura here!  I love these papers and I love to alter my pages a bit so the two worked perfectly together!  I thought I would show how I made the background on a couple of my layouts!

You will need;
a mask
mists
paper towel
molding paste
old credit card or paint spatula

so figure out where you want your mask at


then add your molding paste and spread it using your credit card











carefully lift the mask


allow to dry

once dry, spray your mists




and add other colors


bunch your paper towel and dab your sprayed areas



you can repeat if you think you need more color





To finish I added some gesso around the edge of the paper





Here is the finished result!





I also used this technique on these backgrounds with this months kit!




Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see your creations!
