DIY: Color Block/ Splatter Paint back pockets

    Before Christmas I decided to paint the back pockets of my acid wash shorts to give them a little oomph. 

 What You Need:

- Acrylic/Fabric Paint of your choice (I chose blue)
- White Paint to make the color a lighter/brighter color (Optional)
- Paint Brush
-Cup of water
-Extra cups to put paint in
-Masking Tape (I used regular tape because I ran out of masking tape)
- Toothpicks to mix the paint
 First, I taped the sides of my back pockets. I then painted at least 2 coats of paint to the first back pocket and then moved onto the next. 
            Not yet finish! 
 I then hung it up to dry, and splatter painted it to give it a bigger effect. (If you're wondering what it's hanging on, that's my inspiration board!)
And, here's the final product! Hope you like it..
