Adding Texture With Acrylic Paint

I'm a big fan of dimension.

If page layouts are layered, they look so much fuller.

Somehow, the layers make the pages pop.

Acrylic paint is a great way to add dimension to your pages without taking up your precious time and money.

Some simple tips:

• A simple swipe across a page with a foam brush provides you with a great spot for journaling.

• Use acrylic paint and foam stamps to make your background more interesting (you ccan even stamp right over top of your pictures, they're safe).

• Paint freehand on backgrounds, embellishments, or photo mats to create a more unique design.

However you decide to apply acrylic paint, the finished product will be sure to impress.

Acrylic paint can be found at craft stores, scrapbooking stores, and even sometimes dollar stores. It costs as little as $0.99 and will last for years, if properly stored.

The best part is that once you have some you'll be so impressed you'll want to use it in all of your crafts.

Happy painting!
