Getting Braver!

We all have our own scrapping style and tend to scrap within our comfort zone, using paint and ink directly on a layout has always freaked me out a bit. What if it looked awful?! I am coming to realise that I have been missing so much fun!
Looking through on line galleries some of my favourite backgrounds have been created using mists, inks and stamps and although I have been getting bit braver using the odd stamp directly onto a page I had never attempted anything very adventurous.....until now!
I have never been very successful with mists but over on My Creative Scrapbook they have a great section on the forum and links on their blog to tips and advice on how the design team created certain elements of their pages. One of these tips was to water down some acrylic paint, dip a tooth brush into in and then run your nail across the brush to spray the paint across your page. It worked a treat and I will definitely be doing it again!  So here is the page that I created, using more Websters Spring Market.






Hope you like it I had great fun putting it together!
I will be back with more pages to share over the weekend :)
