5 Backgrounds with Unconventional Supplies
Pinterest Logo
Creativity has no boundaries. If you look at everything around you with an open mind, everything that you see, everything you touch, is a possible art tool. How exciting AND fun is that! Join me in my new video tutorial as I use everything but the kitchen sink to create 5 fun and easy journal backgrounds using unconventional art supplies...14 to be exact! From a silicone pot holder to a fondant cake roller, skies the limit!

Plus there's a fun focal idea at the end of the video which I lovingly call "Faking It" with magazine images! I hope you enjoy it and Happy Creating! Cat
