POP paint is like the beloved chalk paint, textured, rich and with amazing colours you are sure to find a colour that will
get your creative mojo going in a flash!

I used this fun paint on a layout creating a fun background effect. I simply had to try it on paper first.
I am happy to report that my cardstock did not warp at all, and the overall finish if a perfectly matt texture filled with goodness.
I randomly applied the paint to the background and then dressed up my layout using papers, die-cuts and patterned papers.
hello there layoutHow I applied my paint my all the difference in the world
step 1 – choose the colour you want to use. You will need a paint brush and an old credit card/gift card
step 1step 2 – Add some paint to the credit card using a paint brush.
step 2step 3 – Swipe the card with the paint face down onto your cardstock in different directions.
Smooth out the paint in large strokes and then leave it to dry.
step 3The effect is an amazing chalky look giving texture to your background – a stroke of genius and colour.

I simply love the effect the paint adds to the layout.
Now to go and paint some chipboard, wood elements, brads and anything I can think of.

other interesting surfaces that I will share in the coming week.
