So I’ve discovered a new texture that I really like. I’ve been using the woven plastic bag that our potatoes came in. I’m thinking that my husband will be eating more potatoes soon so I can stock up on this stuff.
I love this texture, its fun, and easy to make. I apply some gesso or paint (doesn’t work as well) or gesso and paint mixed over the potato bag. I also discovered a way to make it pop a little more by watering down my acrylics and painting it on randomly on the white parts. Then I cover the card with a paper towel , roll my brayer over the paper towel and it leaves the background with a interesting finish. The pink and blue/green card in the bottom right, was done this way. You can almost see a little of the texture from the paper towel as well.
