New background technique

I’m really excited to share with you this layout I created with a new technique I’ve been playing around with. I’m in awe of and a little stalky when it comes to abstract acrylic painting and so I’ve been trying and practicing this out and adapting to scrapbook layouts.
In my video at the end of this post you can see it come to life. 

So my background mostly consists of acrylic paint, Dylusions to be exact. I chose the floss and mint, not 2 colors usually put together but I loved the feel they gave. 
For my black lines I used Liquitex artist ink in black. 

I used colour blast shimmer pot in envy to add contrast splashes as well. 
Then using a Kaisercraft texture stamp layered this over the now dry paint. 

And yes I only used 1 stamp this time!!! So hard for me cos I love using 4 or 5. But I really wanted the ‘art’ to shine this time. 
Then keeping it sweet and simple, only used a strip of paper from Heidi Swapp paper pad and 2 tags from Heidi Swapps colour magic notes, which I painted over with the same paints but on a baby wipe to then wipe over to show the pattern. 

A little bit of twine some ink splashes and this little beauty was done. So quick so simple! And so much fun!! 

Please check out the vid I made, you can be sure you will see more of this background very soon. 

Catch you all needy month
