Creating Backgrounds - Tutorials

I am very grateful for my loyal and faithful fans and followers, and since many of you have asked how I create my pages, I took a break from "puppy training" my little darling, Cosmos, to record a fairly comprehensive, two-part tutorial for your viewing pleasure.


You'll have an opportunity to stand behind me while I demonstrate a few of the background techniques that I used to create my spread for Week #8's challenge in my Documented Life Moleskine planner/journal.

Part 1

Part 2

I hope I've answered many of your questions and that you enjoy this tutorial.


May your day be bright and beautiful!

I'm not sure which is more colorful, your lovely backgrounds, or your nail polish (grin). Seriously, these are fantastic videos, and I'm delighted to have the opportunity to view them. Thank you, thank you.

Thank you Terri, it's so helpful to see what you do and how you do it - layers of colour and medium are the answer! So looking forward to giving this a go, hadn't realised just what I could do with my watercolour pencils and a babywipe, but will have a try now.

Thanks so much for your videos. I think I get it now. I was really stumped about how you got such vibrant color on the thin moleskine pages. Awesome colors.
