Paint Fusion Box

Hi all! Jen (JLJ Designs) back with a new project. When I first saw the new Paint Fusion stamps, I wondered to myself, now what do I do with this? The CC design teamies pointed me in the direction of YouTube and when I saw this amazing Pansy Tutorial by Sheena Douglass, I had to give painting a try. Lucky me, I had acrylic paints and the right sized brush in my paint box. I mixed the paints, just like she shows in the video, on a plain ceramic tile I had left over from a Christmas project. I chose purple, pink, and yellowish-cream paints. I really like the purple and cream together - I think that's my favorite color combo.

After I painted all the flowers and leaves, I cut them all out (I used a heavy weight cardstock to paint on). I made a box using my Boxer board, where my original paper size was 8" square making a box with finished size of 4" square. I layered light pink tulle over the lid of the box and then glued my flowers down. The tulle added dimension to the flower layers and a romantic feel.

I hope you'll try out the Paint Fusion painting technique. I had so much fun!

Happy Crafting!
