fun background technique

Hello everyone!
Today I'm hosting the ColourArte blog and sharing a fun and very easy technique on how to create a background with beautiful textures and colors!

Let's see the supplies we need for this project:

ColourArte products:
Other products:

  • ATC card
  • Finnabair  Mixed Media Silicone Brush 1"
  • stamps
  • stapler
  • paper embellishments
  • rice paper heart - handmade
  • thread
  • flowers

First I applied the Radiant Gel on the tag with the silicone brush. 
Then I pressed the stamp on the gel and removed it.
It dries very quickly and the result is pretty impressive!

After that I spread some primary elements with a paintbrush here and there and sprayed water.
When it was dry I glued everything down and I was pretty much done!

I hope you got some ideas on how to create a simple but impressive mixed media background!

Have a lovely crafty day!
