MIM #24 and a Dry Brush

Papertrey's MIM #24 is inspiring, as usual. ;)

This week....Dry Brushing!

I've dabbed with a stipple brush before.

This challenge actually called for brush strokes.

I used Acrylic paint since that's what Lisa used in her tutorial, and I liked the color I had in stock.

Usually I use Papertrey's All Booked Up circles as individual focal points.

I tried using all four as a backdrop, and the sentiment got center stage!

I propped the sentiment up with scraps to create bookends.

Give it a'll feel like an artist. ;)

Thanks for peeking in. ;)

  1. What an interesting technique and a lovely way to showcase this set!

  2. Excellent card. Love the effect you achieved using the dry brush.

  3. Great job on this Marlena! I love the calming vibe of your card :)


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
