My daughter has been asking for a couple of days to paint, and yesterday was our first opportunity so I broke out all the kids' paints and let them at it. They had a great time, Lula ended up with half of her paint on her shirt and skirt, and Grayson had his hands and arms covered. Nothing a quick bubble bath couldn't fix though. That's why we use washable and watercolor paints! Aren't they so cute!?!?!?!
March the first was my birthday, and my sweet darling sis-in-law got me a card to Hobby Lobby. This was the first "me money" I have had in a while that didn't end up going to bills, so I had a blast with it. I wanted to get some Vintaj metal patinas to go on my metal clay jewelry, but the only ones they had in stock that I liked were in really rough shape. I ended up with a single black one that I really like (and might review on my other blog), then I wandered around until I stumbled across some sale items in the scrapbooking section. They had some Twinkling H2Os and Silks Acrylic Glaze marked down, and I just had to grab them up. I ended up with the Summer Fun Set of the H2Os, and the Mardi Gras and Tropical sets of Silks.
I have been dying to use them, so I broke them out yesterday for a project I plan to submit as an article. Here's a sneak peek.
I really like the Silks a lot, they are vibrant, shimmering, and thin. Perfect for a solid or mixed wash for a background. I plan on doodling on these little circles in black and white ink. I used all three colors from the Mardi Gras pack, and the pink Plumeria from the Tropical pack.
This is definitely a purchase I would make again. I can't wait to experiment a bit more with these. Have you been playing around with any new supplies?
