Show Me Sunday - A Tutorial by Tenny!

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Hello scrappers,
Tenny's here to share a fun way using paints to create a background layout.
It's super easy. You can find the supplies around the house and the result is just awesome.

So, here are the things you need.
White cardstock, acrylic paints, paint brush, paint palette, some water in a cup, and lastly unwanted or expired credit card.



Start by putting your paint brush in the water, and the paints
on the palette.


Pick the brush out of the water {don't dry it} and
add paint.

Pick you plastic card or the expired credit card.

Paint the edge of the card.



Flip over the card.
Then rub it against the paper {always start in the middle of 
cardstock}.


Here's the result.


Do the steps again using different colors of paints.

This is my finish layout using this technique.


I hope you give this technique a try.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
