All it takes is a little Distress Paint and water!

Hi and Happy Monday!

Tina here today to start our new month of project tutorials and how-to's.  The kit this month is very special.  The July kit has an awesome Ephemera sheet from Art Chix and 2 bottles of my favorite 'new' product, Distress Paints. I could create for hours with just these 2 items.  :)

This is probably one of my current favorite layouts of all time. I'm not sure if it's the colors, the photo, or the simplicity of the layout, but this one is will always be in my top 5.

I put together a video tutorial on how I created this awesome looking background, using just 2 colors of Distress Paint and water!  SUPER easy, and really FUN!

How about some close-ups of that amazing detail?

Be sure and stop back every week in July.  The Design Team has some A.M.A.Z.I.N.G kit projects to share!  They are incredible.

Also, if you love Distress Paints as much as I do, Frog Dog Studio carries additional colors in their store.  You can add these to your kit with no additional charges for shipping!  How cool is that?

I was so inspired by this easy technique, I created a second layout.  I don't have a tutorial on how I created it, but I thought I'd share it with y'all!  Let me know if you have any questions about the techniques used.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Monday!
