It is not a secret that paint sticks are my favourite kind of paint at the moment. And there are many reasons for that: no mess, fantastic bright colours, gorgeous shine and ease of use, to name a few. I have explored a few creative the ways to use them in cardmaking, so you can watch my videos on embossing technique, stencils, masking, and painting a butterfly.

use Paint Sticks – get inspired by other crafters
I have some inspiration from my crafty friends who got creative with paint sticks to share with you (with their consent) – two lovely ladies have made a few cards that are so beautiful that it would be a shame not to show them. Here they are:
Aren’t these beautiful? Gill told me she really enjoys creating with paint sticks and she sent me a beautiful Thank You card she made with them too! It was such a lovely gesture and the gorgeous card is on the display along with Easter cards I received – it makes me smile every time I look at it. I know you want to see it, so here it is:
Jacqui made some gorgeous cards with paint sticks too – fantastic masculine designs but not only. And she was also very kind and sent me a Thank You card she had made using paint sticks and brushos – what a brilliant combination of techniques! See for yourself:
Thank you so much, ladies, for these inspirational ideas, I am thrilled to be the one who inspired you to create these beauties! And I am happy to show all creations made with paint sticks – crafters, let me know you’ve created with paint sticks and I’ll show your makes to others.
