demo:beyond backgrounds

the most important part of the creative process is allowing yourself to explore possibilities without expectation. it’s in those moments where we abandon the predictable allowing ideas to spark and watch magic happen. check out the demo to see colorful backgrounds get reimagined beyond their initial appearance using resist spray, grit-paste, embossing glaze, inks, oxide, crayons, paint, gesso, stamps, stencils, dies and more. i encourage you to take a second look at your artful backgrounds to see their creative potential yet to be discovered…t!m
