Published in Club Scrap Rap

Every month with the new Club Scrap box
one finds an online magazine to download
with wonderful new inspiration 
on what to do with the newly received box.

As you all know I am a technique Junkie, so sometimes
I send in an idea for a technique to Tricia Morris
owner of Club Scrap. She liked it so much and
made it into an article in the Scrap Rap magazine.
You see the printed page below.

So for techniquie of the month at the Club Scrap
forum for September, I thought it would be
fun to see what others would make of this technique:
"Acryl Paint Background"

A fun technique for cards, art journaling and scrapbooking.
This is what you need:
acrylic paint: white and colors
paper, white and black
brush, water, scissor
Club Scrap bookbinding glue
masking paper
you can use a stencil
fashion magazine
spray paint, like glimmer mist
white ink pad
white and black marker
(tip: for white these white correction pens
work wonderfully!)

1.  Start with white and a color of
 acrylic paint.
Color all of the page.

2.    While the paint is drying, 
find a magazine and cut out a picture
You can also use your own photo’s. 

3.    Glue the magazine cut out 
on black paper and cut out together.

4. Take a white inkpad and stamps 
to cover the cut out shape 
on the black paper side.
    You can use words 
or abstract stamps.

5. Take the masking tape to cut out stars
or cicles or flowers etc.

Stick all the stars (or forms you cut out 
from the masking paper) on the dried
    painted background and find a matching spray ink
 (a little darker).

6. Spray on your paper in a pizzabox

7. Take the stars off the background 
and glue your cut out form to
the painted background. 
I did this with bookbinding glue 
and even added a layer on top 
for varnish effect.

8. Finished artwork: use white and black crayon
 and white and black marker to doodle
and stamp some wordart and other 
decorations to finish your artwork.

This is the page in the Club Scrap magazine.
 If you click on the picture
you can see a larger version. 
Hope you give it a try 
and share your artwork in the Club Scrap forum
 Have a creative day!
