This tutorial shows you how to quickly create a background in your art journal using fruit! Vegetables can also be used.
Simply cut your fruit or vegetable of choice in half–I used an orange–apply paint to it with a sponge brush, then stamp away!
Here’s a short video showing the process.
(If you can’t see this video, you can watch it here on YouTube.)
Now, my spread is ready for journaling. If I feel areas are too dark for writing when I get to that point, I can apply a thin layer of white or a lighter color of paint to those areas. Or, simply use a white pen.
