Love You Lots with paint splatter technique

How fun is this? Ignore the copper embossing; while I love the new copper embossing powder, it really doesn't work on this project, but I couldn’t find the white (it was before the Big Craft Sort).

Instead, concentrate on the main image. For this, I masked the elephant, then spattered paint all over the background. I did this at a Crafty Friday event and, again, took inspiration from one of my customers. Kate made a splattered background around her elephant image and we decided it looked like the elephant had done it with a paintbrush. So, between us, we carefully drew in a paintbrush - and I loved the effect so much that I just had to make my own version.


  1. I love, love it. Can you please give more details about how to go about creating a splattered background. How small is the paint brush do you just shake the brush or what. The mask do you cut out a shape of the elephant and then use a temporary adhesive to adhere the same shape on top to protect the underneath elephant. Just beautiful!

    1. Hi Lora, thanks for your nice comment. The instructions for this technique are in this post: Size of paintbrush is entirely up to you - experiment! :)

  2. Love this one too..Can't wait to see what else you come up with. That paint brush is adorable!

  3. thank you for your reply and the link to the tutorial. I will be trying this technique with the spatters.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
