Book Review - Paint on Paper Towel

On NGS group we are doing a study of Bernie Berlin's book "Artist Trading Card Workshop". This week is the section: Paint of Paper Towel. Bernie reminds us that there are many types and textures of Paper Towels. She also says that the texture is shown off well with metallic paints.
I tore a paper towel into 4 sections and painted on an assortment of Lumiere Paints and let it dry.For the ATC on the left, I adhered a whole section of painted paper towel over the ATC and decided to extend the paper towel to the back instead of trimming to the edge of the ATC. For the ATC on the right, I tore a couple of the paper towels into pieces and adhered them over the ATC. These backgrounds are now ready, or....
You can stamp over the paper towels with a large stamp. I used Midnight Blue StazOn ink on this one:
and black StazOn ink on this one:
Fun backgrounds!

Beautiful papers. This is one of the first techniques for backgrounds that I tried when I started journaling. Thanks for posting. I may need to try this again.
