I started this background with a very abstract idea in mind using lots of wet mediums like texture paste, acrylic paint and gesso. Once the background dried i added some stamping and die cut elements along with the element stickers.
I just love playing with my layouts not knowing where they may end up. The fun element of the abstract style really appeals to me.
I find the less thought I give it and the more I enjoy the process, then the more likely I am to like the end result.
I use a sturdy canvas board so it will take all the wet mediums i throw onto it. Give it a go …. it’s very liberating and even when it appears that you’ve created nothing but a hot mess then start to layer some elements on top and you’ll be surprised at how well it all brings it together.
Most of all, have fun!
