I just recently watched a this Katie Kendrick video and thought I’d drag out the old Nevr-dull and give her technique, for making background papers, a whirl.
I started by pulling colored pages out of magazines and books. This technique is easy and fun….you just use a wad of Nevr-Dull to rub the background ink off the page.
You can see in the texture of the cardboard underneath if you look in the dot pattern, interesting! Then you go in with white paint and ink to add more interest to the page.
This is the final look….after ink and paint were added!
