Technique Tuesday

Hi guys!


For this week's technique, I want to show you an easy way to make an interesting background for your layouts.


First, you have to find a cardstock shape. It can be a chipboard star or heart.... I used a cardstock paper plate.


I painted the edges, but not perfectly... so that the shape isn't as well...



I added splashes of paint here and there.


Here is the final page...



One last little hint. Add a little bit of water to your acrylic paint. It will be a lot easier to achieve a great look!


Hope you like this technique!

Kim
