4 Art Journal Backgrounds Using Einat Kessler Foam-binations

#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 images

What 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!

    Foambination Cog is my favorite set! I love using them (cogs) to create lots of texture and depth when making mixed media projects! I think they also add the illusion of movement so that makes them even more awesome!! TFS!
