Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers

Feb 11, 2011

I bet you were expect­ing anoth­er tag using Per­fect Pearls? Well this one fea­tures Ranger’s Adiron­dack Acrylic Paint Dab­bers. When using paint I find it most inspir­ing to cre­ate whim­si­cal pieces with brighter col­ors rather than my usu­al vin­tage style and shades. Kin­da strange when I think about it. Also, did you notice I used my Can­vas Album as inspi­ra­tion for this tag? If you did, you are a very devot­ed blog­ger.

I always find it fun to use items around my scrap­room to cre­ate designs… one of the sim­plest things to cre­ate are pol­ka dots with the non-bris­tle end of my paint­brush­es. All you do is dip the end of the brush into the lid of the paint­brush and start cre­at­ing dots. Clean up is super sim­ple too. All you have to do is swipe the end with a paper tow­el and you are good to go. I also like using lids to jars or the rim of a drink­ing glass to cre­ate cir­cles. They always come out so per­fect­ly imper­fect. Oh and accent­ing paint­ed pol­ka dots with Dia­mond, Ici­cle and Crys­tal Stick­les adds quite the sparkle. I let each lay­er dry before I add the next and once all three lay­ers are dry you have awe­some sparkley pol­ka dots.
