Today I'm sharing 4 Art Journal Backgrounds Using Einat Kessler Foam-binations. These stamps are so easy and fun to use on any size art journal. You can create countless combinations and backgrounds using acrylic paints, sprays or inks.
#1 Adding layers to an existing background I never waste paint so when I work with stamps or stencils I always use the leftover paint on a new art journal spread. This way I create more backgrounds just by cleaning my brush or stamp. For the first page I used my Foam-binations to add bold and colorful images to the background. This added even more layers that I can later build on when I finish my page.
#2 Think outside of the box I started the second background in the conventional way of stamping. I sprayed the page and added Foam-binations prints in different colors. But then I had an idea...why not use the side of the stamp too? The side is not as smooth as the front so the print came out with a beautiful texture. What a revelation! Always try to extend the limits of your material you never know what you'll find!
#3 Acrylic paint resist The third background is full of amazing Foam-binations prints. I used smaller stamps and even large stamps. The way to use a large stamp on a small space is simply to apply the paint to only part of the stamp and then print. Once the background was finished I sprayed it. Spraying the page after stamping created a resist effect with the acrylic paint, since they don't absorb the spray. All the prints look like they're embossed to the page!
#4 Bold colors, bold imagesWhat I love about Foam-binations is they're size. You can create such bold backgrounds and if you use bold colors the effect is even better!
I hope you liked these backgrounds and I'm sure you'll create amazing pages!
