Progressive Blog Hop...Day 3!

Here we are again! I am sad to say that today is the last day of the Scrapdango Progressive Blog Hop! But there is still lots of fun in store today so let's get to it!

Today we are giving you another 6 ingredients...this time to use on an altered item. You can make your altered item anything you would like! I decided to make a Christmas ornament. I used chipboard as my base.

My ingredient for you today is paint. I love all the different things you can do with paint...recolor stickers, paint a swatch and journal on it, use it with a mask, add some texture, and the list goes on and on. For this ornament, I used it to soften the background. I still wanted the words from the vintage dictionary pages to show through bt wanted them to be a little more muted. After mod podging the pages on, I took a cream colored paint and dry brushed it on over the entire thing. Love the effect!
I hope you have fun playing with your paint and all the other ingredients too! Can't wait to see what you do!
