I love using paints, DecoArt has an amazing selection of colors. When I work on a mixed media project I tend to put more paint on my palette than I need. What do you do with the extra paint on the pallet when you are fished with your project?
I did just that when I was working on my journal pages a few days ago. When using so many colors I didn't know how much I would need of each one.
Not wanting to waste anything discarding the paint is not an option!
I have a deck of playing cards that I painted with gesso. I keep them in a box and when I have left over paint I pull out the cards and paint backgrounds for future use. You could also use the extra paint on journal pages.
It is fun! Paint them one color (which I rarely do) or make designs.
These are the cards using left over paint from my journal pages.
I created this Paris ATC with one of the cards.
