I love using paint on my layouts. Misting...not so much. I have a few mist bottles and they get clogged so easily, I hate pulling them out and trying to unclog the sprayer, getting messy and mist all over the kitchen sink only to finally get to use them...and then my layout doesn't look anything like I envisioned. Paint, I can use. So when there was a challenge over at Citrus Tree Studio to use water on your layout, I knew misting was out for me. I decided to pull out the paint and get a little bit creative.
I love the look of misting or dripping on layouts, so I mixed a little bit of water with acrylic paint until it was 'flickable'. Meaning, I can flick my paintbrush with my finger and get some splatters on paper. And that's exactly what I did...
I started with kraft cardstock so if I messed up, it would be easy to replace. Add two cute girls, some new Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup, some doilys I cut using my Cricut software and this is what I came up with.
I found the free doily svg files at My Grafico. I am trying to use my Cricut and my SCAL software more and I was thrilled to find these free files!! I am just scratching the surface of using my SCAL software, but the more I use it...the more I like it. Here's another doily
I am really loving the colors of this Jillibean Soup line. I find myself wanting to hoard the papers but I need to use them. So I can buy more, of course!!
Happy Friday! We have baseball and softball tomorrow but it's going to be a beautiful day, probably in the mid 80's. Time to find the sunscreen!! Have a great weekend, friends!
