The background of this page is Folk Art metallic paint. I have an addiction to metallic paint! I love the look of it! So shiny! I find it calming just to gesso and background paint page. I love the feel of the paint brush spreading the paint. It feeds my soul. I made myself make a large swirl for this page. I was scared to do it. But I did it, and it is not that bad! I used a large black Sharpie and a Bic Wite-Out correction pen.
