I've really missed adding paint to my pages. A year ago or so, I had to throw out my Making Memories paints. All of them were dried out and unusable.

Recently, I picked up a few Martha Stewart paints from Michael's. I think I like them even more than the Making Memories paints! They're thick and smooth and easy to apply. I've also been experimenting with other mediums. The first layout below has "glass beads". You can mix it with the paint and it gives a really cool texture.

The last couple of layouts I've made have some paint on them:

 Papers are  Lily Bee (one of my absolutely favorite companies). I think the title card is Fancy Pants. I keep a stash of "loose" items underneath my desk. It forces me to use something I normally wouldn't.

Papers are Studio Calico. There is also some Crate, BasicGrey and 7Gypsies.

Thanks for looking and thanks so much for your comments. Have a great day.

Sweet baby sleeping. Okay, true confession-that picture hurts my neck to look at. Ah, to be so flexible again! I agree on the Making Memories paints, they didn't stand the test of time.
