Techniques for Mesmerizing Backgrounds: THREE Ways!

Catherine General

Catherine Pooler Inks are perfect for ink blending and water color techniques. They lend themselves perfectly to creating mesmerizing backgrounds!

In this video, I created three backgrounds using ink blending with water and shimmer paints. Whether you create a night sky, or an ocean scene or a holiday card, these backgrounds will sure to mesmerize your recipient!

There's no wrong way to create these backgrounds. I pulled a variety of colors that I felt would give the “night sky” feel and just went to town with my tools and inks to see what would happen.

One background took on a life of its own and was giving me “depths-of-the-sea” vibes. Another worked perfect as a non traditional night sky for a holiday card.

Dive in with your inks, blending brushes, watercolor cardstock, water, shimmer paints and some paintbrushes and see what you create!
