Entries for Technique Inspired Challenge 5

For Technique Inspired Challenge 5, the challenge was to play with paints on our layouts / projects!

Here are the entries i received for this challenge...
"Show Me How" by June

I painted part of the paper and then stamped on it.

Feli says:
Love how she whitewashed the paper so that the stamping is more apparent! It also helps to tone down the patterns on the background...

"that Face" by Edleen

I recycled the BOSS tag from a denim jeans and made my own felt car. Painted along the the border as if to create a frame and distressed on the paint with ink. i actually used 2 paints here where the colours are almost similar. but the other one is a dried up paint which i just basically pressed on the layout.

Feli says:
I love the distressed look and how the paint colours create a frame around the photos!

"melaka" by Georgina

I decided to paint the front and back cover of my Album. The Front Cover, I painted the edge using Kaiser Crafters Acrylic paint. I painted a little pink to frame the title of the album.

Feli says:
The album is so pretty with all the colours and flowers!!

Merdrey & Feli

For Technique Inspired Challenge 5, here's a layout where I used corrugated cardboard as a base and painted it...
Also added some green and brown embellishments on the page. Made some of my own flowers too! =)

The clear acrylic was misted and inked with distress inks... Love the effect!

Hope this inspires you to create something fun and happy with paints! Can't wait to see some interesting takes on the challenge! :)
