Toilet Paper Background

A very easy technique, which gives fabulous results!

Supplies Needed:

Plain cardstock
Acrylic paint in a couple complementary colors
Cheap toilet paper


1.  Squeeze out some acrylic paint onto a palette (plastic butter tub lids are good for this)

2.  Crumple your toilet paper and dip into the acrylic paint.

3.  Dab onto cardstock randomly. The wetter the toilet paper gets, the more it will degrade and leave little bits on the cardstock.  This is what you want it to do.

4.  Let dry.  

The finished piece may be stamped on and cut out or used as a background paper.
