that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider
the possibilities of paint on your projects.
If you are an "everything in its place"
kind of scrapper, painting might be a challenge at times.
Just remember that one of the most liberating aspects
of adding paint to your layouts is that it doesn't have to be controlled.
Everything can still have a place while also being a little "displaced."
There's no need to stay within the lines.
In fact, it's when paint ventures outside of the lines
that it lends a bit of funk and charm to pages.
To create the background for the page below,
I painted and stamped in layers.
I brushed a coat of Fire Engine Red over the back of a lined stamp,
and stamped the image nine times,
adding a little more paint as the image became lighter.
I repeated this process with Grammie Berry and Luscious Lilac,
stamping over the original image,
and not worrying whether the lines overlapped.
A bit of Vertigre Vibez action
added a kind of "coffee stain" effect on the background.
I went a little paint-crazy on the next layout,
and didn't worry for a moment
about staying in the lines.

by brushing paint on the edge of a thick card
(a piece of cardstock, cardboard, or fakey junk-mail credit card would work, too)
If you've got paint all over your fingers (and not just your layouts),
consider yourself one happy scrapper.
