Playing with paint

Hello, friends!  January is almost over and the month-long partnership between Altered Pages and Deco Art is winding down.  My post today is just me playing with some embellishments.  First, a vintage image from one of the Young Lovers Valentine collages.

I wanted to use this plain chipboard frame and white cardstock and I didn't have anything in my collection already the right color.  The frame and back panel were painted with Deco Art Flesh Tone acrylic paint to match the collage art.

I'm no stranger to altering embellishments.  I use painted and inked paper flowers and chipboard all the time.  Today I thought you might like to see some of the other items that I have painted using my Deco Art acrylic paints.

Brads and swords - plain and painted, side by side.
So go out and play with your paint.  It doesn't always have to be a journal or canvas!  Just have fun. 

Until next time...Happy Crafting!
