Hi Ive been creating backgrounds today. When I need a bit of inspiration I quite often get one of my books off the shelf and stift through for ideas. This collection of backgrounds was inspired by a book I have about interior designer Caroline Quartermaine. She uses a combimation of the old and worn with beautiful contemporary colours and gold.
All the backgrounds apart for the first,which is a collage with inked and stamped paper ,were made with inks and embossing powders. If you click on image to enlarge you will see the details better.
