Cherish - The Paper Trail GDT Kit Reveal - Challenge #6

The Trail Makers are having a month long crop and I get to host the 6th challenge as their GDT for the month of May.  So head on over to Trail Makers and play along!!

For this challenge you need to use paint.  You can paint an item, splatter paint on your paper, use paint and water to distress your papers, or what ever you can think of as long as it includes paint!!  I love to use paint on my projects as it adds so much dimension and extra softness to the look of the project.

For my example I used glimmer glam paint in brown to paint the word cherish (wonderful Dusty Attic piece from the May The Paper Trail Kit).  I then also used pink acrylic paint to make the splotches on the brown background paper to match the pink splotches on the Little Sprout blue swirl paper from the Trail Makers Store.  I then also used water and a light brown acrylic paint to wet distress the reddish/pink background paper from the The Paper Trail May Kit.

The pic is of my son one day when we were playing on the playground.  The Little Sprout paper line (borders at the bottom, blue swirl paper, and paper paper the heart butterflies are punch from) are all from The Paper Trail Store were just perfect for this picture.

Challenges: - end 5/31x - end 6/8 - end 6/7 (tool - punch) - end 5/31x - end 6/10 - end 5/31x - end 6/8
