Paper Issues: July Try It Tuesday!

Hi Happy Arty Days Friends!
Welcome back for another super fun edition of Paper Issues Try It Tuesday!

This month we're going to get a lil messy with paint, & try the scraping technique! Yay! 

This technique is really easy, super fun and creates the coolest backgrounds! 
Here's a quick step by step of what I am meaning.....

1. Apply a few spots of acrylic paint to your layout. 
Ensure that you use colors that will blend well together 

2. Take a palette knife, old store card or even a piece of cardboard, apply mild pressure & literally, scrape the paint.

3. Scrape paint repeatedly until you're happy with the results!

I felt mine was a lil lacking in the pink color, so I added a few paint splatters.....

Such an awesome fun background!

Here's what I created with my paint scrape background....


Oh W.O.W!!! 
Doesn't this just scream Summer Fun?!!!
I've used Echo Park Summer Dreams collection & had a ton of  FUN embellishing this!
You'll notice that my background has become more subtle now, 
and really just highlights my layout - perfect!
Here's a few close ups for you.... 

Lots of layers, chipboard stickers, element stickers and die cuts - so cool!
Here's another view of that awesome paint...

So fabulous! Sweet on Summer indeed!
I really hope that my layout has inspired you!
I love to get messy, and even if you don't, 
I hope you'll Try It for Tuesday ;)
