Technique Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, girlies!!! Hope you've all had a great start to the week! For this week's Technique Tuesday, let's talk paint!

The possibilities with paint are endless! There are so many fun & creative ways we can use it on our LOs.
On this recent LO, I used paint in a variety of ways...

As you can see here, I used paint to create a border around my black & white photos. I just brushed the paint around the edge of my photo to create a frame instead of a traditional mat.

Here, I used paint around the edge of a Heidi Swapp Ghost shape to make it stand out on my page.
I did the same technique below with the HS Ghost letters.

I also painted naked chipboard swirls and then doodled on them with my Zig Writer after they dried.
I hope this inspires you to use paint on a LO soon! Be creative...see what fun ways you can use paint to make your pages stand out above the rest!

For those of you wanting to earn FRIENDZ POINTZ..... Create a page using paint on it, e-mail me a photo of it and I'll give you 8FPz!!!! E-mail your pages to: scrapfriendzy@windstream.net

Have a super scrappy day!
