Here's the second layout I made for Nancy's family. The pictures are from their May 2011 trip to Moab, Utah.
I wanted the design to be stark, much like the landscape in the photos. I love the way the red rocks look against the blue sky, so I chose that for my color palette. I poured some Americana 'Georgia Clay' acrylic paint into my Frisbee. Then I got out the old toothbrush I keep in the craftroom.
I dipped the toothbrush into the paint, then ran my thumb across the bristles to splatter paint onto plain tan paper. I let a few accent drips fall, then used the toothbrush to paint the chipboard title and date stickers. What fun to play with paint!
