Join Hybrid Team Member Jerrie Hall as she shows you how to create painted collage backgrounds fast! Then she shows you how to add printed digital scrapbooking elements to your completed page!
Once you try this technique, you will be addicted and find yourself creating backgrounds for more pages than you need! Wouldn’t it be great fun to create all the backgrounds in a new journal first, then design your pages accordingly!
Digital scrapbooking supplies used:
Fall Watercolors digital kit
Fascination Word Art Mini
Scenic Route digital kit
Abstract Expressionism Masterpiece Word Art
Abstract Expressionism Florals Embellishment Mini
1- Acrylic paint (I used Golden Fluid Acrylics)
2- A sample cardboard credit card – works nicely!
3- Your Scrap Girls embellishments, word art or whatever
Printed out on Magic Matte paper available here:
(Printing on Magic Matte paper, renders regular printers ink waterproof)
4- Golden Soft Gel Gloss
Step 1- Begin by squirting a dot of paint at the top of your journal page. Taking your cardboard, above the dot of paint and scraping downward towards the bottom, creating a beautiful paint smear!
Step 2- Repeat Step 1 with as many colors as you want and in any direction that you want.
Step 3- Print and Cut out your Scrap Girls pieces and start adhering them to your journal page with the Golden’s Soft Gel Gloss.
Step 4- Continue until you are satisfied with your design. That’s all there is to it!
