With mixed media, you make art your way! A board can look essentially however you want; there's no right or wrong. Start by attaching some tissue paper with decoupage varnish. Wrinkle the paper a little to give it some texture. Let dry. Prime the board with a base colour, such as pink. Paint over with turquoise and black, but let the pink show a little. It is completely fine if it looks a little blotchy and uneven. Paint stencil designs, such as bricks and dots, with a foam rubber roller. Then paint the girl, bike, and letters on top. Paint and attach canvas letters. Decorate with newspaper clippings, stickers, stamps etc. Our huge Art Journaling assortment has loads of decorative materials from which to choose!
