Altered Wall Art using the Haute Mess Acrylic Paints

Good morning bad girls! I am so excited to finally share this altered wall art piece I created for my scraproom. I was able to create this fun piece with just a few gorgeous paints, paint brush, 4×4 piece of cardstock, fabric, stencil, butterfly punch, a button and a 4″x4″ frame. For this piece, I selected 4 different paints from the Haute Mess acrylics, but feel free to use more! God knows, there are about 27 gorgeous colors to chose from in the shop! It was definitely hard for me to narrow my selection down to 4 paints. LOL

I used four different Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess Paints to create this little gem which includes Kiss and Don’t Tell, Oops! My Bad!, X-Rated, Drop Dead Gorgeous. See them all here! Which ones are your favorite?

How to:

  • Cut 12×12 piece of white cardstock to measure 4″x4″.
  • Select 4 bottles of the Haute Mess Acrylic paints as desired.
  • Using a stencil, small paint brush and the acrylic paints, color patterns onto the cardstock.
  • Allow paint to dry for 5 minutes (these paints dry super fast!)
  • Cut a piece of fabric to desired size and glue the fabric to the center of the painted cardstock.
  • Punch a butterfly image from a scrap piece of patterned paper and adhere it to the center of the fabric using fabri-tac or Tombow glue.
  • Then glue a small button to the center of the butterfly.
  • Insert decorated cardstock inside of a 4×4 frame of choice.
