and here's my first page I created using the Funfetti kit. And because I am a bit of a paint lover, today I am sharing a quick tute on how to add a little bit of freestyle scrapping to your pages. So lets take a wee look at the layout!
Start by selecting a couple of colors of acrylic paint and blob onto your cardstock.
Using a dry paint brush dip the brush into the blob of paint and brush up and down lightly and only once. We want it to look like a brush stroke.
Now grab those old making memories foam stamps that have been sitting around for decades and swipe some paint onto them and just randomly stamp. Allow the paint to dry.
Grab an assortment of stamps and black ink and randomly stamp, this adds so much detail. Once you are happy with your stamping it's time to grab a gel pen and highlight the letters by outlining them, add doodles as you go. Now you have a funky cool background to work with, all you have to do is add your photo and embellishments.
And here's another page I created using the Funfetti Kit. I am a circles girl. And this is a favorite design of mine and I love using up scraps of pattern paper this way. I hope you like my oversize pie chart! I'm also a embellishment LOVER. I love using the printed quotes that come in the kits. You will notice I always cut them up. Its just something that I do.... crazy I know! But it works for me like this!
