My base is cereal box chipboard covered with reused coffee filter & coated with gesso. I attached torn pieces of newspaper with mod podge and then painted over them with gesso. By the time I was done with the page, it's pretty hard to tell there's newspaper on there.

All your layers of coffee filter, newspaper and Gesso making a very interesting texture for your bg. Plus you've got a lot going on with the music, bird, washi tape, nice colors, and great sentiment. Good job!

Wow! Did I say 'Wow'? This is amazing
and what a great way to recycle junk! I can see the newsprint and the goal here is to just catch a hint of it so you succeeded! I love the colours you used on this and the collage stamping. This is a true mixed media success!
