VIDEO: Easy Acrylic Paint Background Mixed Media Technique

 

I’m keeping things simple today with a really easy, but totally effective, acrylic paint background. And for a bit of contrast I have also played with one of my geometric designs as I wanted to see how it would look on this background. So if you haven’t yet tried using your acrylic paints like a watercolor paint then you will enjoy playing with this easy acrylic paint background as it will ease you in to trying this technique in a no fear kind of way! It’s only a background after all!

And you can see that you can use it for pretty much any mixed media fun that you might want to add over the top as it just stays put as an acrylic paint background should! So try it in your next art journal, painting, mixed media or even card making project! And I have a close-up picture at the end of this post plus some links to other videos you might enjoy too!
