Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It has been hot here in upstate New York, but I am not complaining since it rained here at home nearly the whole two weeks we were away!
I spent much of this past weekend happily catching up on my altered book. In Lesson 9, Elizabeth shared a wealth of information on how to make some cool backgrounds. She has an awesome tutorial tab on her blog where she shows many of the backgrounds in her post, as well as, many other tutorials that I am just itching to try!
The first background I tried was the "Smoosh & Twist"--Just the title made me want to try it:
My next background was based on her "Napkins, glazes, stamped" background. This background is meant to beautify an otherwise ugly sheet of paper:
I was familiar with the "Bubble" background as I have used this technique before. I made a cover for a book where I keep the drawings I have made for my beaded sun catchers.
