Mona here today to share several steps I took to alter my photo tray inside and out using a variety of paints.
I applied Distress crackle paint clear rock candy to the photo tray front edges and sides.
I applied a coat of picket fence Distress Paint to manila embossed cardstock, die cut grungeboard pocket watch and embossed craft foil.
For a metallic shine, I applied Silver acrylic paint to the die cut grungeboard pocket watch frame.
To reveal the embossed detail, apply pitch black acrylic paint to pocket watch face.
Use a baby wipe to remove any excess paint.
Randomly apply spun sugar Distress Paint, slightly drying in between paint applications so you don’t make mud!
repeat Step 6 using rusty hinge and picked raspberry Distress Paints:
Randomly apply picket fence, bundled sage and forest moss Distress Paints to die cut grungeboard garden greens.
I love the way you can easily alter metal embellishments with just a light coat of picket fence Distress Paint:
Once the cardstock painted background is complete, trim to size then adhere in place.
Embellish with altered metal embellishments, paper flowers and sentiment.
I love all the various techniques that you can do using paint. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I hope I have inspired you to create!
Thank you Mona for the inspiring tutorial! Now it’s your turn – join us this week in the challenge!
