Happiness Layout

August 6, 2015

Hi Perfect Paint Fans!!!!

I am beyond thrilled to share with you

a layout I created of my grandson.




Now a boy layout is a bit of a stretch for me

as there are no flowers and such

so I decided to let the textures tell the story.


I used Perfect Paints ~ Polishing Plaster ~ Apricot Lily

through TCW ~ Specimen stencil and applied

it randomly on the cardstock.

I lathered the Polishing Plaster on a bit thick

as I was using texture to tell my boy story!




I went to my chipboard stash and pulled out

a few that I thought would go well with my layout.


I began with CE ~ Love Knot Panel.

I painted on a layer of

Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic Paint ~ Espresso.

When dry, I dabbed on a bit of

Perfect Paints ~ Polishing Plaster ~ Dried Cranberries.

I love the contrast of the shimmery paint

and the TEXTURE!


One of the aspects I LOVE about

Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic

is how smoothly it brushes onto a surface

but on the other hand due to the “medium body” of the paint

you can also create a texture.




I applied a rather thick layer of

Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic Paint ~ Moss Green

to my CE ~ Flourish 15 and

with a sponge I dabbed the paint.

When dry I sanded off bits of the

Shimmering Matte Acrylic Paint then applied

a bit of Archival Ink ~ Potting Soil over top.



Lastly, I painted my CE ~ Bird

with Shimmering Matte Acrylic Paint ~ Shadow.



I hope you have enjoyed my “BOY” page
