Petra here and yoday I will talk a little bit about paint. I love paint :) According to me there is never an excuse to not use paint on a page. It gives the page a unique look and lifts up pale papers.
On the page below I have used paint in three different ways.
1) I have painted the pattern paper with paint mixed with water, not the entire paper but parts of it.
2) I have used paint on a mask and then pressed the mask against the paper to get a partial print. After letting dry I have used a pen to highlight the shape
3) I have used paint (again mixed with water) and splashed on the background.
You can use most types of paint; acrylic, distress ink, mist, etc., depending on the looks you want and how dark your paper is to start with. Om this particular page I used Acrylic paint as I had a black background.
