Playing With Paint

Second class challenge for Technique Class 101 week 1 hosted by iScrap.net is all about paints.
It has been some time since I have used paint on a layout and most times I just use a touch.

For this layout I used only paint,except for the touch of one button as embellishment.
Pieces of Saran Wrap for the background and one small brush for the flowers.
I do not consider myself a true artist,so decided the best approach would be to have fun with this.

Really like the results that plastic wrap brings to paint.
Will be trying this technique again! I had such a good time creating this layout,reminded me of my childhood days in art class.

My eldest son and Aunt's dog at my Grandmother's house...notice the graffiti on the barn walls.
My grandparents were all about expressing yourself and allowed all the grandchildren one side of the barn to do so!

This is so cool!! Not an artist, phhhttt, who are you kidding?? I think this is probably one of the neatest layouts I've seen in awhile. Very original and creative - you don't even realize how artistic you are!! Great work!
