So Many Ways to Love Her {My Creative Scrapbook}

It's Monday again...they just keep on coming, don't they?  I'm sharing my final project featuring the April Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  This one was my favorite of all my projects this month.  I used a lot of the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes washi tape paper included in the kit, as well as a lot of paint.  Lately, I'm loving starting with a plain white piece of cardstock and making it work with what I have.  I watered down some paints here and used a foam brush to spread it around.  Super easy!

I cut this arrow and the word "love" with my Cameo.

These Thickers are originally brown, but I colored them to match my paint colors.  I have a tutorial below showing how I did it.

I just LOVE this butterfly!  I crinkled him up some to give him some interest and depth.

Here's a little tutorial on my alpha painting :)

I hope this inspires you to get out your paints and create something unique!  Don't be afraid to get messy...that's the fun in it!  I can't wait to show you what I've been working on with the May kit from MCS...the reveal of that kit is coming on the 5th, so stay tuned!  You won't want to miss it :)

Have a GREAT day, and thanks for stopping by!
