Ever since I got back from Ranger U I've been dying to get some studio time and play with my new distress paints! I found some time and went for it! First up, a page in my art journal... just straight-up joyful distress paint drippage and a celebration of time to be creative.
I squeezed out a puddle of all these distress paints across the top of the page and then sprayed with water... let the drippage commence!
And then I used my Dylusions journaling/stamping block to trace the curvy lines down the rest of the page, and journaled all about how great it felt to get messy and creative after months of packing and planning.
Then I started playing with the paints to create some tag backgrounds. This first group of tags is straight distress paint on the craft sheet, spritzed with water, and tag swiped through.
Then I wondered if I could combine distress paints with Dylusions ink sprays... oh, yeah... it works!

I went a little further with one of the tags, doing some stamping with my hand-carved stamps, Dylusions stamps, and some brayering - all with distress paint.
I had a blast playing with the distress paints and can't wait to do more! Hope you have a chance to get painty soon!
