Create beautiful backrounds with LuminArte’s Radient Rains & Twinkling H20’s


Mary Boesel of Wisconsin created this beautiful ATC using Radiant Rains and Twinkling H20’s for the background. How did she do it? She sprayed her background paper with Radiant Rain’s, a couple of different colors, and while the surface was still wet, with a paintbrush and Twinkling H20’s, she swirled in contrasting colors. The colors bled together a little, but you can still see the details of the swirls. The effect is stunning. Thank you Mary!
