Playing Dress Up, on Paper

I LOVE using my paints to dress up elements on a project. For this layout "34 and Counting..." I wanted to use the awesome Pearlz color, Grammie Berrie, to highlight my hair in the photo.

Here's a close - up of my locks. :) I layered pieces of my hair by cutting up two printed out photos. After I had the layers placed on where I wanted them, I used the end of a paintbrush to randomly apply the paint, creating texture bubbles by flicking the brush. 

AND of course, I did a bit of dripping with Grammie Berrie and with Mama Sings the Blues,
 randomly throughout the layout too.

It's amazing what a beautiful hued, paint can do to highlight and dress up your projects!
