Let’s paint the town red…. just kidding. But speaking of paint, I thought it would be interesting to have you use paint on your pages for this month’s challenge. Any kind of paint will do, but to start you out, we included a couple in the freebie, which you can pick up right here. You don’t have to use the items in the freebie, anything Designer Digitals in your stash will be just fine, as long as there is some paint included To get you motivated I have a few pages to give you ideas
The first one is by Joanne (jcaruth910)
She used this gorgeous shot from her Alaska trip and can you see how she blended the paint into the picture? It’s just wonderful! She used the following supplies:
