When I started out doing Christy's art journal/smash book I decided I did not want to use double sided papers, after I got them all chosen and cut, I then did not like the stark white. So I decided to airbrush the backs, ROFL, what was I thinking was my first thought, then as I got into it, I LOVED it. It gave me some great time to work on some techniques and has given Christy's journal/smash book that individual look that I was going for. Also once I got into it, it did not take as long as I initially thought it was going to take. All of them are not scenes, some are stamped, some are stenciled. These were done with the Copic Airbrush and markers. I know the top one looks a little unworldly, I have been watching too many Science Documentaries, LOL. And don't forget, when you do do that background paper and you have one that you especially like, remember to scan it in so that when the opportunity arises to use it again, you don't have to re-invent the wheel. Below is a card done with the 2nd background paper.
Hope your Friday is Terrific. Hugs
