Fruit is healthy. It’s also usually packaged in a slew of different plastic goodies that can be used to create divine texture on canvases, mixed media projects, and, of course, art journals!
Texture Technique: Eat your fruits…and save the package! Strawberry containers, grape bags, Asian pear wrappers, and many other fruits are all packaged using different types of packaging which have circles, squares, hexagons, diamonds, and other sorts of designs. Instead of throwing all of that texture away, save it for use as a stencil or glue it straight down and gesso over it to create a tactile texture versus visual texture!
