'FREEBIES! Art Journal Page Backgrounds / Textures - celebrating 100 Followers in 2012!'

by Mary Lou 'LuLu' Haynes

Howdy and welcome,

As part of the celebration for attaining 100 Followers of my blog , I'm offering this mixed-media collection of  backgrounds - FREE! FREE! FREE!

These FREE backgrounds are from my art journal (a giveaway prize) that I created using custom designer tape, custom labels, custom stamps, patterned scrapbook papers, die cuts frames, tissue  papers, painted wax paper, deli papers, custom embossed metal tape, copyright free images, Rollagraph stamps, Stampin' around stamps, printed tissue paper, Tim Holtz tissue paper, ink, acrylic paints, custom glazes and gessos (clear, black, white, custom tinted) using a wide variety of mixed-media techniques.

Yep! You read it right - these backgrounds are FREE for you to use in your artwork!

how will you use these FREEBIES?

  • Will you create textures by printing a page for your art journals, altered books, visual journals and assemblages?
  • Or will you make image transfers by inkjet printing onto deli paper, copy paper or transparencies - and adhering with soft gel medium?
  • Or how about dishing up some digital layers by using these FREEBIES in Adobe Photoshop or in Microsoft Digital Image Editor?!

All I ask is that you:
  1. please give credit to  '' when you use these in your art work.
  2. please send me a link to your blog post of any work you create using these  FREE FREE FREE backgrounds. I'd love to see what specatacular stuff you come up with!






























  • Small journal from Staples Office supply store - lined paper.
  • Pages glue laminated together for strength.
  • Pages 'under journaled' (a Pam Carriker term) with pencil resists (graphite and colored pencils).
