Urban Layer Cake Tutorial {⒡ⓇËḝ}


This is Urban Layer Cake, my tutorial from 21 Secrets back in 2011,  about grunge + acrylics. I also taught this technique to a group of high school art teachers and we had a blast. It's just a fun technique that is versatile and flexible and can be used to create all sorts of layered page backgrounds.

In this tutorial I create a rough, grungy art journal page using Golden fiber paste + Golden fluid acrylics applied with a gift card. The center is perfect for writing a quote or journaling stream-of-conscious thoughts.
