So, you've made your backgrounds...now what do you do with them?
The sky is the limit when you think about it.
You can paint on it -- here I did an abstract and stamped it using acrylic paint instead of an ink pad. Photo shows a detail. It looked like the funnel of a ship. A ghost ship, perhaps?
I was getting ready to collage this next background when I thought, why not use fabric instead of paper, and stitch it.
