Practical Scrappers Ten Things - Paint

Hello friends!

Today at Practical Scrappers the The Ten Things Team are sharing several ideas on using paint on a layout.

On my layout, I created a frame along the outside edge with a large wood stamp and some acrylic paint and distress paint from Tim Holtz

I embraced imperfection and used paint dabbers and "inked" up my stamps and went for it.  I used three different colors and alternated.  I then machine stitched around the inside edge of the paint border.

here are some more closeups

Why don't you give it a try.  It's lots of fun.  Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Lovely layout and great job with the border! Loving the 'imperfect look'.
