Art Journaling Mixed Media Techniques Review: The Sandpaper Method

A review on how to create an art journal background page using the sandpaper method.

I am always trying to discover new ways to create original effects so that I can add it to my artistic arsenal. The sandpaper method is just one of those techniques that never fails to give me that unique look.

The sandpaper method can give you a variety of effects in your art journal. For example, you can take a photograph and with a fine grit sandpaper sand the edges of the photograph. Then go over it with watercolor paints and the color will seep into the photograph where it has been sanded. It also gives a worn appearance and makes a nice overall effect. Also, if you are painting on your art journal page you can sand down the paint once it is dry. This again gives your page a worn look.

Sandpaper is extremely inexpensive. You will most likely find it at your local dollar store. You can even use the sandpaper itself as part of your art journal background page. If you wanted to do a beach scene, pieces of sandpaper would make a great sand texture. That's just one idea.

You can combine the sandpaper method with other methods to create a truly unique art journal page. I wouldn't stop at just one method because it is the combination of methods that allow for the magic of art journaling to come alive.

Try the sandpaper method at least once. See if it is something you like and would like to add to your art journaling tools. At the very least keep a small piece of sandpaper in your toolbox just in case. You never know when your creative mood will strike in that direction.
