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.lovely layout chiswickStep 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 1Step 2 – Lift some paint with your paint brush and then add a layer of paint onto the stamp.
step 2Step 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.
step 3Once 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.
