Section 1: Handmade Backgrounds

In this section I will show you a few simple ways I make backgrounds using a brayer and a Gelli Arts gelli plate. Be sure to photograph your papers in various stages as you go. This is very important, because sometimes you may want to revert back to a step, and if you have been taking pictures, you will have them.

Also be sure to photograph your backgrounds in your camera’s highest resolution. This will give the most digital data to work with.
