Painting on a Project

The challenge this week over at Frosted Designs is to paint on your project and I did just that. I used several colors-black, white, red and yellow and gave my background a graffati look of all the colors to kinda match the outfits that the skaters are wearing in their performance on ice. So here is my 2-page layout for this challenge.

 I used background paper by Scrappin Sports, white cardstock for mats, red cord for torn area, crop-a-dile, alpha stamps by Studio G for the sub titles on scraps of packaging paper, and one sticker embellishment. And of course acrylic paints in 4 colors.
 I will also be applying this over at Scrap our Stash  for the "New" challenge this week. I have never painted the whole background of a page (new technique)- but now that I've done this once I'll probably do it again- it turned out great and it was fun to do.


  1. Oh my word this turned out great!!! I love the way you created your background! It gives your LO such a unique look and works so perfectly with your photos!! Glad we could provide you a little inspiration at FD... thanks for playing along!

  2. So pretty! I love how you made the photos pop with the white matting...they sit perfectly on that fun & funky background.

    Thanks for taking the challenge at Frosted Designs!

  3. Beautiful lo, Debbie! I'm happy you got messy :))). It's fun, isn't it?
    The red cord is great too.
