Paint Fusion at Crafter's Companion

When I first saw the new Paint Fusion stamps, I wondered to myself, now what do I do with this?  The CC design teamies pointed me in the direction of YouTube and when I saw this amazing Pansy Tutorial by Sheena Douglass, I had to give painting a try.  Lucky me, I had acrylic paints and the right sized brush in my paint box.  I mixed the paints, just like she shows in the video, on a plain ceramic tile I had left over from a Christmas project.  I chose purple, pink, and yellowish-cream paints.  I really like the purple and cream together - I think that's my favorite color combo.

After I painted all the flowers and leaves, I cut them all out (I used a heavy weight cardstock to paint on).  I made a box using my Boxer board, where my original paper size was 8" square making a box with finished size of 4" square.  I layered light pink tulle over the lid of the box and then glued my flowers down.  The tulle added dimension to the flower layers and a romantic feel.  

I hope you'll try out the Paint Fusion painting technique.  I had so much fun!

I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. Allsorts #140 - free and easy February part 1
2. Hotshot Crafts #3 - flowers
3. DYSU #57 - anything goes
4. Craft Us Crazy #20 - anything goes

Happy Crafting!
