Here is a quick background tutorial I have put together for you:

Step 1: Scrape some gesso on your background in a rough triangle shape then dry. Then take your 13 Arts Color Basics Triangle Mask and using a lead pencil trace triangles on your background.

Step 2: When your happy with the position of all your drawn triangles, again take your stencil and place it on your background. use a palette knife to spread modelling paste through the mask. I have actually tried to spread it in a way so that I have not completely filled any triangle with the paste, instead creating, raised, partially finished triangles.

Step 3 and 4: Stamp the paste while it is still wet. I have used an ordinary Lego block, and also a Lego Duplo block which is larger. You can use pretty much anything for this step, however if you choose to use a normal stamp I would advise spritzing it with water first. After that let your modelling paste air-dry.

Step 5: Now that it is dry you can begin adding color, I have used 13 Arts Mists in Chalk Celedon, Chalk Sap Green, Pastel Green, and Pastel Yellow. I have sprayed some of each color onto my craft mat, then using a paint brush applied the colors directly to my background, switching colors often, and blending with each other.

Step 6: When I had finished the background it seemed like it was missing something so I have added some 13 Arts Water-Based Ink in Orange, again painting it on the background with a very wet brush. Add some splatters of color around the page.

Step 7: When all the color is dry use a black pen and doodle around some of the modelling paste triangles. I have done this in a very random manner.

Step 8 and 9: To finish off I have added a little black stamping with a triangle stamp, and some splatters of 13 Arts Water-Based Ink in Black (Graphite). 

Step 10: Now that your background is finished you can begin to build your paper layers, add your photos and other elements.

And there you have your finished page!!! I hope you liked the tutorial!!!
