Paint technique up at Scrap That Baby

Today was my day to put together a technique post for Scrap That Baby. I, of course, decided to use paint. I'm not going to pass up any opportunity to get paint on my hands!! It seems to me that a lot of people stay away from paint for some reason or another. I just want to encourage you all to bust out some paint! It doesn't have to be the expensive kind or anything.. I use the cheap acrylic paint that you can get for like $1 or $2. And they have so many colors, you can't go wrong! And I also recommend puffy paints too.. you can get those for cheap as well!

Anyways, the topic of my post is using paint to add texture and interest to your mini albums. Of course you can use these techniques in everyday scrapbooking too. Head on over to Scrap That Baby to see my tips!

Here's my mini album (visit Scrap That Baby for the bigger pictures of the techniques):


Two awesome things I must say about this mini album. 1--I used all scraps!! 2-- I took all of the pictures in it!! I know it's a simple mini album, but that was the point. I wanted the emphasis to be on the paint.

Don't forget to check out my post at Scrap That Baby!!
