I love playing with paint, and using layers is a great way to build up interest and texture on a project. There are lots of different ways to use layers in your work but I've chosen a couple of my favourite go-to techniques that you can do right now even if you are a complete beginner.
I'm using an art journal for this project. I use both bought art journals (of which you will find a great range in Blitsy, by the way) and found junk journals such as old event flyers or old books to journal in. For this layout I'm using one of my found junk journals. But these techniques can be easily adapted for anything you might be working on such as a canvas or a wood block or even if you are altering an apron.
So let's get layering!
