Kraft Plus Challenge

I love the current challenge over at Kraft+. An inspirational picture and a splash of paint. Awesome.

I don't often use Kraft as a background so this is always a good challenge to do. I like to try different things and see what sticks :)

And this is my take....

I began with yellow acrylic paint mixed with texture paste and smeared it on the background. Then I watered it down and splattered it over the page. I don't do messy very well but I think it came up a treat :)

I stuck with the monochromatic look, inspired by the picture, with a hint of gold and white here and there.

I was particularly taken by the white love heart in the inspirational picture, so I was very bold and used white paint to doodle a messy heart on the page.

I really enjoyed creating this page. It came together pretty quickly. I finished it off with a few enamel dots and some hashtags stickers. 'Cos you doesn't like a good hashtag :)


  1. This looks lovely! Great take on the challenge!

  2. I think the heart is FABULOUS! And you do messy really, REALLY well. Better & better! Loooove those layers and that gold vellum?? Tape??? And the corner cluster is my many goodies that look just 'right' together.....thanks for joining us at K+ this month!!!

  3. The Kraft+ challenges are amazing, aren't they. You have knocked this one out of the park. I love the layers, and the clustering! The little touches of white pop so much!!
