As promised here's the next phase of
my junque journal. This scraped paint
background technique is a simple
technique, yet very rich looking!
It can be used as is or as you
will see it can be enhanced.

Scraped Paint Background
Heavy Bodied Acrylics
Old Credit Card or stiff cardboard
I prefer to use heavy bodies acrylics they glide and mix
well compared to thin craft paint. I'm using Golden
brand which is my favorite, but there are other
brands as well such as Liquitex.
Step 1: Place your wax paper under neath your page
over hanging the edges so you don't get paint on the
Step 1b: Squeeze a dime or nickle size amount of paint
out on your journal pages. starting at the time use
lighter to darker hues.
Step 2: Using your credit card (I save the sample
credit cards that come in the mail for this) start at the
top and scrap your card across the paint mixing as you
go down the page. Wipe your credit card off on some
wax paper and begin again. Be careful you don't
over mix your colors and muddy them.
Step 3: Continue until you have covered the entire page
completely and allow to dry.
Here's the finished look. At this point
you can stop and use this as a journal page
or continue to the next step to enhance it more.
