Paper and Paint as Background

SONY DSC

Use a variety of papers for your collage backgrounds.  Here, I took ripped pieces from my newsprint drip pad and strips of scrapbook paper, and attached them to my canvas with matte gel medium.  When completely dry, I used a palette knife to spread heavy body acrylics through stencils.  This piece isn’t finished, but will hopefully inspire your next blank canvas!
