5 Backgrounds with Unconventional Supplies

Posted by DecoArt on Mar 11th 2020

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
