WIP: textured base

WIP mixed media/Grene art modeling paste

A great way to use up those excess scraps and trims is to glue them in a pattern on scrapbook paper to make textured background. I started with a toned down 6x6 patterned paper, gessoed it and glued on all these scraps with Modge Podge. It's my go to glue for base collage gluing now.

Modge podge is a sturdy and flexible glue which I definitely like for these kinds of projects.

Then I got a fun stencil, this case dots to contrast the squares and modeling paste.

I definitely like the contrast this is giving. Added more dots to the whole page and when dried I sealed it with some Modge Podge shimmer varnish.





That shimmer varnish sure does sparkle! I really love how this base turned out and next week I will show you what the completed project looks like :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
