Today I have been thinking a bit about backgrounds in my junk album. Trying to make it look a bit less like a heep of cards -a nd more like an art piece.
The wonderful things about junk albums is that there as so many different surfaces to work on. I had some glossy cards - so I did a bit of alcohol ink staining.
Then I got out the good old paints and splodged that about - I particularly wanted to keep the texture in the second one - but get rid of the Christmas look
Some pages I will use just as they are
And some I just covered the greeting
A couple of pages were unuseable in their present form - great excuse for paper collage
and don't worry about the papers overhanging - it all adds to the fun and the laid back style.
