Painting the laser cuts in July's kit

The laser cuts in the July kit are so fun and versatile. You can change their appearance and use them as an embellishment on your layout, or use them as a mask to create a different look. The "school of fish" laser cut complimented the theme of my beach layout and I painted it with the MM acrylic paint in July's kit to match the colors in my layout.

I painted the majority of the laser cut with the Making Memories Funky Vintage Chartreuse acrylic paint from the July kit. I love the way this paint compliments small sections of the kit's Scenic Route paper line. Way to go Lynn!

I painted one of the fish with the EK Success paint marker – Clementine from the kit. This cooredinated great with the color in the title.

To finish it up, I added some detail with a Sharpie pen and some brads from previous rockin' IAAS kits. :) This layout was super fun to make. I can't wait to see what everyone else does with their laser cuts this month.
Happy scrappin'!
