Art Studio – Textured backgrounds



Hello Ck fans it’s Leeann here. Today I’m sharing  how I created this textured background using up some left over alphas. And I’m  using the January Alegria  kit because it’s fancy and gorgeous of course!


So lets get started – I’m using the pinkfresh studios alphas ( happy things) leftover from the  October funfetti  2015 kit. You can used any alphas you have leftover for this! I randomly place them on a piece of white cardstock. Applied two coats of gesso and allowed each coat to dry.

Once dry I used my water colour paints. I created a pool with the black watercolor paint and brushed over the letters. Add flicks and splats. Once happy with the amount of color blot with paper towel to soak the excess off. Allow to dry. I love the result of the letters they pop under the color!

I added  some detail by randomly machine stitching zig zags in a bright yellow thread. I love using my stamps to add pops of designs. I have an assortment that I go too all the time.

Once you are happy with all the mixed media layers grab the January Alegria kit and get scrappy.
