I loved the pictures of my niece playing with the blue ball at our house and I wanted to create a unique embellishment to add to the page. So I pulled some round chipboard Lil Davis Designs numbers (yep they are old) and decided to cover them with paint. Oops - no white paint left! So I pulled out the puffy paint. On a tray, I squirted a big blob of puffy paint and added some blue MM paint and swirled it a bit. Then I dipped and dried. It created a marbeled effect which was glossy just like the ball. It took a while to dry but the results matched really well.
You could do this with any chipboard letters or shapes. Swirls of blue and green to mimic the water, a mixture of variants of red, orange, and yellow to mimic fire etc. Try it out!
