I love to use Making Memories paint! They have so many colors to choose from that you can almost always find one to match your lo! They are an affordable way to customize things to match your paper or pictures. My favorite ways to use these paints on my layouts are--1. Use them with foam stamps--I love the look of foam stamps and they are a great cheap way to fill in empty space on your pages! They are also cheaper than rubber stamps generally. 2. And the other way I love to use paint is to print a title or journaling onto a transparancy, then paint on the back of the transparency so that you can see it behind your writing. I think it adds alot of interest to the page. No matter how you use it you will not be disappointed with these paints!
If you haven't noticed, painting on layouts has become HUGE in scrapbooking. Using paint broadens your horizons and opens up so much potential from odinary supplies. You can paint paper, chipboard, metal, transparent embellishments, and so much more!
I have used many kinds of paint, including the $1 or less craft paint, and I stand by Making Memories paint as the best for scrapbooking. First off, the colors are so rich and vibrant, and there are so many to choose from. Also, the paint goes on very smoothly.
Just a quick tip... you may notice that the paint begins to 'seperate' a bit when it's sat for awhile. Simply give it a good shaking and you're ready to go.
I have recently started to use paints in my scrapbook layouts. I shopped around and decided to purchase the Making Memories Paint Colors Kit in Hampton. It is great. The paint is easy to apply and has very vibrant colors. The paint pours easily out. Once applied to the paper it dries quickly and looks great.
I also like that it comes with a tray for the paint and also several foam brushes. I used the brushes to apply the paint to my stamps. I liked the paint so much, I went out and bought more Making Memories Paint in different colors!
If you haven't tried this paint yet, you need to! It goes on super smooth and dries very very quickly with no streak or brush marks! Vibrant colors that are actually safe for your scrapbook! Also, if it separates, just shake it and it's good to go again! Highly recommended!
I have really started using more and more paint on my LOs! And this MM paint set is really awesome! The colors are brilliant, and I love that it comes with it's own foam brushes and tray...so you are totally ready to paint when you pick up this kit!
