Jessica here with you today for a little tutorial in getting your hands dirty!
* Acrylic Paint
* Foam Paint Brush
* Alpha Stickers / Thickers
* Fine Tip Pen
* Desired supplies for your project (patterned papers, stickers, pictures, punches, ribbon, chipboard, etc.)
I used the April Lucky Girl Kit - "A Boy & His Toys" for this layout. We've got a select few left in the store - be sure to get yours before they're gone!
To start, I laid out my Thickers in the desired pattern (mine happened to be inspired by a Target wall decor item I came across last week). I added a few paint spots to the page and blew them into dramatic shapes using the straw.
Once your pattern or title is laid out, paint over the section. I only added a little bit of paint to my brush, then did it back and forth both horizontally and vertically.
Once your paint is dry, trace your letters with a fine tip pen. It works better if you do this while the letters are still in place. Once that's complete, carefully peel the letters off the page.
From there, I completed my title with contrasting letter stickers and a hand-cut heart, then completed the rest of my layout. I must admit, it's pretty fun getting messy once in a while! I kind of revel in the perfect little imprefections of this kind of project.
Let's see what kind of mess you can create into a work of hear! Ready, set, GO!
