GPP Crusade #29 - Brush Effects

Michelle's Crusade #29 was all about the use of "painterly effects" to make lovely backgrounds for your journal pages - or use them around your altered photos - or use them on top of your journaling - or as well, anything you want really. I had a lot of fun with this, and definitely want to use these techniques again. I used my trusty Golden brand Quin Magenta, my cheapie JoAnn's teal and leaf green, made stencils, a bit of my hand carved stamps. Now I just need to art journal on top of it! Do I dare? Not sure....hmmm....

I saw this crusade and want to try it too - love what you did! I know what you mean about journaling all over your beautiful backgrounds!! I took a visual journaling workshop and put time into creating the pages, then wrote on them and it felt really strange, but I think I've gotten it:)

Beautiful brush effects here, Jane ! It is hard to cover up some of our treasured backgrounds isn't it ? You could always make a copy of it first !
Nice job, Crusader !
Cheers !
Kim

Hi Jane,
Your pages are terrific! LOVE the Golden acrylics, too, esp. the magenta! I'm really curious what surface you used to work on. Brava!
