Let me start with showing you what I made and then I'll proceed showing you how I did this. So here's my layout:
and here's what I did: I started with the pink milk paint and put a little bit in a cup:
Next I added a bit of cold water and stirred:
Even though the water was cold it dissolved perfectly. I decided that the color was a bit too light for my taste and added a bit of the red milk paint to the solution:
This was exactly the color I was looking for and so I painted my entire white cardstock in this color:
Next I chose a background cut file from the Silhouette online store and cut this: isn't it fabulous?! I was so pleased with the result! Really love the stripy water color look!
I placed this background on a sheet of white cardstock and used my sewing machine to stitch four horizontal lines.
Last but not least I placed my (matted) photo on top and embellished with stickers, washi tape and wood veneers.
