    Linear Textures in Red

    fluid acrylics + comb = linear texture


    An abstract rich red background on 9 x 12" heavy cardboard, the back cover of a wire-bound watercolor pad. To get this texture, I dropped dots of Golden fluid acrylics on the cardboard and spread them out with a plastic gift card. With a wide-toothed plastic comb, I made horizontal and vertical lines... alternating and adding paint until I got the look I wanted.

    Abstract art makes a brilliant background for art journaling, or you can cut abstract art into anything ~ artist trading cards, inchies or book marks. Try this in an altered book, on watercolor paper as a loose art journal page, in a journal or moleskine or on the edge of a retro scrapbooking page.

    I experimented with a comb and fiber paste at Linear Textures in Lime. Yummy.

    More fun at How to Make ATCs from Abstract Art, Psychedelic Batik Cardstock and Inspiration: Doodling & Imagery.
