Lovely Lucy shares an easy, textural layout with us today. She creates an interesting background with acrylic paint and a toothbrush!

Sweet Soul
by Luciane Folch

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Chatterbox Botanical Collection and Premium Paper Collection "Foyer Dots"
Alphabet: Artsy.licious in Kohl
Chatterbox Icons and brads
Chatterbox tags
Making Memories acrylics

First I used a tooth brush to paint the background.
Then get the patterned papers and crumple it strech it back and add to the background.
From the foyer dots paper I drew a bracket that you can use this template if you don't have any.
Glue it down on your background and leave an open space so you can add the tags behind the papers embellish it with Chatterbox icons and brads.
Add your photo.
Add your title.
Here I did put some of the letters on the top of each other to create dimension.
