Beautiful World Layout

I was invited to be a guest designer for 1-2-3 Get Scrappy this month, and it was a great opportunity for me to think outside the box! I grabbed some paints (not something I normally use in scrapbooking) and painted a background for my layout. Although it took a while for the paint to dry, I love the finished product and am so glad I tried something different. Check out the challenge board below, and hopefully you'll get inspired to try something out of the box on your layout, too!
I chose the column with two paints, the word beautiful, and a die-cut piece.
