Sunday is turning into night and soon a new week starts! To kick start it, I have a tutorial for you! It's making your own text background and you can see the video already in 3rd Eye blog or in my YouTube channel. I shall also blog it during the starting week here in my own blog.
There's many text or calligraphy style papers out there right now. You can achieve the same look with some text stamps and a bit of patience. This particular set by 3rd Eye is really great for making this kind of background as with the heart the words form a relatively straight edged rectangular. Having that kind of "block" makes things easier with aligning the words and columns. Of course you could stamp the words to the page one by one, but that would require much more time. With the block you can cover a larger area quickly!
I used acrylic paint when stamping but simply changing the medium the outcome changes dramatically. Just think about white paper with watercolor like text compared to the one you see above. Also by changing the color of the background paper you can create a very different mood to your finished page. I created two pages for the tutorial - this is the other and the other is made to a kraft colored background. What also changes the feel of the page is the style of the text and the words used. There's plenty of different word stamps in 3rd Eye shop - click here to go browsing.
Thank you for your time! Wishing you a lovely start to the new week! See you again!
