    Day 28: Paper and Paint

    Welcome to Day 28 of the 2021 Month of Challenges! I can hardly believe we are already on the homestretch.

    Today's challenge will test your ability to work with limited supplies. As you may have already guessed from the title, you will be creating a page using ONLY papers and paint.

    Here are the rules for this challenge:
    1. Use at least 2 papers on your page.
    These should be regular solid or patterned papers, not paper scraps, journal cards, ephemera, etc.

    2. Use at least 2 paint elements on your page -
    droplets, drips, splatter, blobs, brushstrokes, etc. This is about using paper and basic paint ONLY. Painted embellishments are not allowed - painted leaves, painted flowers, painted frames, or other painted elements cannot be used on your page.

    3. NO ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS ARE ALLOWED

    4. A Title is optional. If you include a title it must be made from paper or paint.
    This is the only exception to rule 3. You may use an alpha or font title, but you must clip paper to it. You may use a painted alpha or painted word art for your title.

    5. Photos are optional.

    6. Journaling is optional.
    However, you may only use fonts for your journaling, no alphas or word art as they would be considered additional elements.

    The intent of this challenge is to scrap with limited supplies - basic papers and paints. For clarification, while the supplies should be basic, this doesn't have to be a minimalistic layout, you may use as many papers and paints as you would like.

    Here is my page using 5 different papers and 3 paint elements.

    I can't wait to see what you create with paper and paint!

    Please remember the general MOC guidelines:
    Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places:
    1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site).
    2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean.
    3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.
    Pages must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).

    CLARIFICATIONS:

    ** The spirit of this challenge is to work with limited supplies and create a page with limited embellishment other than from paper and paint. "Cutting" paper into basic shapes is absolutely fine. However, cutting out specific objects or patterns from the paper serves to create your own elements which are not allowed. Templates used for placement and basic shapes are fine. But please don't clip papers to the portions of a template that are meant to represent embellishments, this also defeats the intent of the challenge. I know that sometimes these rules seem arbitrary, but it is a challenge after all. Thank you!**


    You may use multi colored paint. Please use basic paint strokes, splatters, washes, splotches, drops, etc.

    You may "cut" your paper into shapes. You may not use already made elements that happen to be made from paper, such as journal cards, tickets, other ephemera.

    Templates are allowed. However, templates should be used for photo and paper placement, but should not be used to clip papers to in order to make elements to embellish your layout. Just keep in mind that your finished page should comply with the challenge rules and contain no embellishments, only paper and paint.

    @ashleywb Can the paint splotch for lack of a better term have multiple colours or is it only allowed to be a single colour?

    Can you use patterned paint from a kit? Micheline Lincoln for example has lots of elements that are paint or brushstrokes but are also patterned?

    No patterns please. I'm looking for basic paint - splotches, splatters, strokes, washes, etc.

    When you say 'regular solid or patterned paper, not paper scraps or journaling cards' does that mean we can't cut paper into shapes?

    You may clip your paper to shapes to look as if you cut it. But you may not use premade elements that happen to be made from paper. Does that make sense?
