Default Creating a random background.

Since I was asked how I created the background for my July sketch card,I thought it best to post the youtube link from where I learned this technique, demosnstrated by artist and teacher, Diana Trout. Watch her other videos to learn other cool stuff.
The trick is to let each layer of paint dry before adding another. I use black pigment ink or a solvent ink, to stamp over acrylic paints. You can also use watercolours randomly using a brush.

I have posted here some of my other work using the credit/plastic card method:

...watched the video and like this technique...her ESCAPE page looked really cool!
Waiting for the layers to dry must take some patience though!

When you work with acrylic paint straight from the tube/bottle, it dries fairly quickly, especially in warm weather. I think that it also depends on the brand and the type of paint that you use, not to mention the paper.
It's trial and error.

For the card I used a leather texture cardstock. It has a lovely crackle effect when the paint doesn't get into the cracks. I always forget that it's difficult to get a clean,stamped image over this kind of surface. This is one mistake that I never learn from! My memory seems to be going...

I really like collage techniques, but I don't know how to achieve it. I really like what you have shown us here. Can you give some pointers.

For instance, on your raven card -- did you draw the image directly on the prepared background? If so, how did you get the face so light. Was that just an area of the background that you kept light on purpose? Or did you cut it out and layer it on? Are some elements stamped and some cut out?

Also, any tips on color? I tried this background and let the paint dry between colors, but it looks like a bunch of random colors and isn't pretty like yours!

Thanks!
