Tonight after work, I decided to start working on some Valentine's Day cards. I decided to use some of the papers and supplies from my January card kit from Simon Says Stamp and to incorporate my Dina Wakley stencils and acrylic paints by Claudine Hellmuth. I was up late on Sunday night watching Dina demo (from CHA on You Tube) how to make fun backgrounds with paints and stencils and so I knew I had to give it a try.
I really enjoyed just letting go and having fun with the paints and by the end of the session I was covered in paint, ink and gesso.
Both of these cards are not my usual style, but I really enjoyed the experience and all the fun texture I was able to get on them with the paints.
Dina will be putting out her own line of paints and brushes through Ranger, and I cannot wait to get my hands on them to continue exploring the world of mixed media.
