Further Book Page Progress

Here’s the next step to complete the backgrounds for my book pages. I scraped various colors of paint on with a credit card. Very technical painting here =0)

Here’s a close up after the paint is applied.

Next I covered this with a coat of stain. I was supposed to use walnut ink but didn’t have any so I substituted walnut furniture stain. It worked fine. These are more brown in real life than the photo shows.

The next step was to add creme paint with grids and doilies.

Here’s a closeup of one of the pages at this point. Several more steps to go before the backgrounds are complete. Then I’m going to add photos, words, doodles, and stuff from two old magazines that I bought a couple of weeks ago – one is the Saturday Evening Post from 1950 and the other is a woman’s magazine from the 1930’s.
