When I started my Sunshine Layout (using January’s Tea & Cupcakes kit) I really wanted to play with some paint and some tone and tone texture, it’s not my normal style but I was in the mood to play and I think it’s always important to try new things and learn about ourselves through creative play.
I started out by misting the white cardstock then painting over parts of it with some white acryclic paint. Then I layered on some white paint circles. I used the plastic ring from an empty tape dispenser dipped in white paint to create the double ring circles.
Once the circles are dry I layered on some hole reinforcers.
Another layer of white paint over top some of the reinforcers and paint circles and my base was done. From there I continued to layer on more painted circles – some in white some in orange, a bit of orange mist and a little bit of hand stitching. I also removed some of the reinforcers that I had painted over to show some of the paint dimension.
And the final result is a subtle tone on tone textured background with a few splashes of color.
Hope you all have a great week and remember to break out of your comfort zone once in awhile and do a little creative playing!
