I just realized I had one more background
technique to share with you from my Junque
Journal How-To series. (click HERE to view it,
and my other Junque Journal pages)
With this background I began by painting both
pages (side by side) with a layer of gesso.
Once dried I painted on the right side with craft
chalkboard paint. It use to be that you could
only find chalkboard paint in spray cans or in
large size cans. Now you can find it in small
craft size paint bottles which is nice so it
doesn't go to waste.
Once you've painted your chalkboard paint and
it has dried well. Use a piece of chalk to season
your chalkboard by scribbling on it then erasing it.
I decided to use my Portfolio water-soluble oil
pastels to decorate around the edges along
with embellishing with paint pens.
For the left hand side of the page I first misted
my dried gesso page with Color Mists which
are vivid sprayable watercolors. Then once the
page was dry (heat guns works great for drying).
I once again used Portfolio water-soluble oil
pastels to draw a design. After I sealed
the page with PYM II , I then further
embellished with paint & gel pens.
