In starting this blog, my aim is to have a place to share my scrapbooking, card making, paintings and photos with friends and rellies. Hopefully it will inspire me to produce more....LOL. Welcome!

some art journal backgrounds

while on holidays I have been finding some time most days to play with painting backgrounds. I have been following Julie Balzer's free stencil class and my head is bursting with new ideas. I also recently bought her DVD. It is so much fun to just play!
I used a corner of this one to make this card from a Let's Scrap sketch

the orange in the one above is actually a little more yellow. The other colours are quite accurate. It needs more doing to it yet.

this is one I am loving!

I painted over this as I paint flowers like this all the time and I am trying to do something different. However when I do a suitable background I may put some of these on top.
