In Tina Walker's final post as a Guest Designer for 100 Proof Press, she shares with us a background technique you can use with acrylic paints and rubber stamps. I have been very grateful to have Tina create such wonderful art with our stamps, and I thank her for her inspiration.

Hi! Tina Walker here again today with my final Guest Designer project for October.
On my last October project, I showed you how to use background stamps to create texture on a Mixed Media layout. Today, I would like to share with you how to do the same technique to create an Art Journal page.
To create the background for my Art Journal page, I added acrylic paint with several stencils from my stash. (just for a hint of color). After the paint was dry, I added random stamping for texture.
Now for the fun part! To create your flower shape, hand draw several flowers on a thin piece of cardboard or heavy cardstock. Cut out the flowers and 'paint' around the edge, NOT covering the entire background. (I used Distress Paint) Doodle and paint your flowers with spray mist. Since the Distress Paint and Spray mist are transparent, the background is still visible. The spray mist is transparent, so you can still see the yummy stamping beneath.
Finish off your Art Journal page with a favorite quote or sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by today!
