Mix It Up Monday - Acrylic Paint

First Monday of summer! It's time to pull out your acrylic paints and get messy for this month's Mix it Up Monday with Paper Issues!

I used a lot of cool-tone Dina Wakley acrylic paints to create the background of this page. I used a very recent photo of Matt and I on a harbor cruise through Chesapeake Bay. The water photo seemed fitting with the paint colors!

I used the "you are my happy" sentiment from Dear Lizzy Happy Place collection. I painted it light blue, then covered it with blue embossing powders, heated the powders, the painted over it with a dark blue. The dark paint settles in to the cracks left behind from the embossing powder. I love it!
