Sometimes only paint will do.

I think by now it might be a bit obvious that I love all things messy. Ink, paint, color sprays.. It's all wonderfully exciting to me! There are times when I want to make a page extra special and in those cases, I feel only paint will do. I often handpaint backgrounds to build my layouts onto. I think it gives them a cozy "handmade with love" vibe. My latest project with a painted backgound is this:

I painted a sky and sun onto a 12x12 acrylic page and finished it off with a sweet picture of my dd. Yes, she really does outshine the sun in this momma's eyes! The chipboard frame and clouds are from Magistical Memories and the fabric flower is a RAK from my girl Wendy at Wendy hammer Designs.

So do you ever paint backgrounds on your projects? Share a link, I'd love to see!
