POP Paint – stamped background on a layout
Posted on 08 Feb 2016
This week I have been using my POP paint range for some crafty details in scrapbooking and cardmaking. I simply love the look of painted elements as well as
painted background on my projects, and the POP paint chalk paint just adds to that funky and artistic look.
You can use it in a multitude of ways depending on the look you want to achieve. This week I used it on a layout together with a background stamp for a fun look.Step 1 – select the colour of pop paint you want to use on your project. You will also need a background foam stamp and small paint brush.
Step 2 – Lift some paint with your paint brush and then add a layer of paint onto the stamp.
Step 3 – Position the stamp onto your background cardstock and stamp.
TIP: Because of the nature of paint, your stamp will slip so be careful when placing it down onto the cardstock.
Then apply light pressure to make sure the image transfers onto the background.
Once the background is dry complete the layout as per your design. I added some pencil scribbles around the stamped paint dots.
TIP: Note the wonderful texture the paint forms on the background once dry.
Add additional artistic elements like stamping, tissue paper, sewing and embellishments to support the look and feel of the paint background effect.
And that’s how easy it is to add POP paint elements to your layouts and cards – perfect not only for your home decor and furniture projects,
But perfect for crafting, scrapbooking and mixed media projects too.
