Maggie Holmes Design Team : Every Moment With You

By Jcchris
Hello friends! It's Jessy here again to share with you this layout that I had so much fun creating. i absolutely loving those new acrylic paints. I kept thinking of fun ways to feature them and decided to create stripes of paint as background. 
Maggie Holmes Design Team : Every Moment With YouTo begin, I used a recycled gift card to spread the paint across. Started that process by squirting a lil paint across the card. The amount of the paint will also determine how wide you want your stripe to be. Then I slowly spread the paint by applying the pressure to the card against the cardstock and pulled across. Keep alternating the colors until your background is filled with paint, from top to bottom. I also added some gold paint to create the subtle contrast in between the colors.

I wanted to create a frame and at the same time to add more interest & texture to my layout.  Next, I positioned the photo in the middle and continued with the embellishments all around the photo. These embellishments are carefully chosen to match the overall look I was going for.

I hope you will give a try with the acrylic paints on your projects. They sure give you the artsy feeling in a fun way! Thanks letting me share today.
Xoxo Jessy
