Mix Media Background-Pushing them Back

Color can be wonderful as well as bold at times. I like to 'push it back' as I call it. keep it from competing with the focal of my mixed media pieces. Each time i do this it is a bit scary as I cover the entire piece with paint.Then begins the process of 'pushing it back.'

Step 1- Cover with acrylic. I like a white or cream color.

Step 2- work it around, covering the sides as well.

Step 3-After letting it dry a bit, I wipe off lightly with a damp 
paper towel or baby wipe. In some areas a tad (a little ) more
to let the bold color pop. (I just can't help myself).

After as I added other elements.

Before I started.
