Heb nog een schilderij gemaakt met found poetry. Hier laat ik je zien hoe ik de achtergrond heb opgebouwd.
I made another painting with found poetry. In this post I''d like to show you how I built up the background.
Step 1: paint the canvas in 1 nice color of acrylic paint; I chose greenish yellow.
Step 2: tone it down a bit with a thin layer of gesso.
Step 3: tear out some nice photographs from an old magazine, in colors you like. I chose flowers with 'pinkish' colors.
Step 4: color all over the canvas with colors to your liking. Try using colors that match with the photographs you used. You can leave parts of the photographs uncovered (or remove some paint when it's still wet). Make sure the different colors of paint and the photographs all blend nicely into eachother.
So there you go, your nice colorful background is now ready for journaling or painting or anyting you like to make on it!
