This week we're setting the challenge to the design team to use paint on their layouts.
This is just some of the paints in stock at Aussie Scrap Source - Lil Davis does acrylics, metallics, glitter and kits, Hero Arts have cool watercolour paint wheels which give beautiful soft subtle effects, Junkitz have a box of little tubes of really useful colours which are fabulously portable for crops and Heidi Swapp has paints that perfectly co-ordinate with everything else in her range.
This week Nic Howard shares with us some of the paint techniques she has used in this layout
The new release 'Scarlett's letter' papers by BasicGrey feature a lot of foliage images. Nic thought it'd be perfect to use with pics of her husband under the Kiwifruit vines.
- Nic used paint to dry brush a white edge all the way around the edge of the background paper. (The one next to the black).
- Nic used paint over the top of SEI letter stickers. When she lifted the letters, it left a painted negative image.
- Finally, she cut the foliage image out of one of the 'Scarlett's Letter' papers, turned it over and used it as a mask. Nic then turned it back to the right side and stuck it down to the layout.
Check back next week to see what the rest of the design team come up with.
