The Book of Backgrounds Project

The Book of Backgrounds project helps you get past the blank page syndrome and have backgrounds ready in an instant when you have a creative idea.  Each background has it’s own full tutorial, some short, some long and can be used to create backgrounds for any type art, whether it’s art journaling, mixed media, landscapes, wildlife or portraits.  The 2018 project will be starting soon, so you can get a feel for past backgrounds below.
