Painting Techniques for your projects...

Hello everyone!  Audrey here to share some ideas on different painting techniques to use on your pages and projects.  I have been thinking about different ways to use paints on my pages because I love the way they add a bit of a "messy" element to my pages.  I have been working with the Crate Paper Storyteller line, and I just LOVE it!



I created the chevron pattern on my page based on a quilt pattern.  I simply cut 1.5" squares and cut some on the diagonals to form the individual squares.  Then I glued them into the chevron pattern.



Now, for the painting techniques, I did a few things that I have never tried before on my pages.  The light blue paint is actually applied with a wad of saran wrap.  I just wadded it up, dabbed it in paint, and then dabbed it on my page.  And the little black circles you ask???  Well I have these two techniques, plus EIGHT others on my blog today.  I have put together a tutorial with TEN DIFFERENT ways to use paint on your pages!!



The page above has two of my favorite techniques, but I hope you will stop by my blog and check out the others!  Thanks for stopping by Practical Scrappers!!!

the saran wrap painting technique can be used further to make this notebook and other scrap books look old but crafty. i think, you just have to use dull colors such as brown, gray, and the likes.
