*Happy Tuesday Challenge*

Tuesday brings lots of fun things....
new movies...
new iTunes (apps, music, movies...)
new tv shows...and....

a challenge.

and not just any challenge
today is my tuesday to challenge you over @ For The Luv Of Art .
it's just a simple "use paint" challenge.
like I did above. VERY simple. VERY easy. VERY fun to do.
nothing out of the ordinary...

I just used a tp roll as my guide, painting it brown, then laying it on
the pink cardstock.
next I used Shimmerz  Vibez (Pop Art Pink) and misted through the tube
(which made it circular, not ALL over the page. LOVE that)
next I painted the bottom of a can (see the 'go green' pattern?)
pink and placed it on the brown cardstock:

and used my ruler to draw lines
to journal on.
easy, breezy....

I also used paint on this layout:

I painted kraft cardstock (which was actually a mess up...lol!)
and punched butterflies from the painted cardstock.
I also painted my butterfly borders, the photo,
the edges of the cardstock and even the tips of the flowers.
again...easy breezy.
I loved using store product this month from For The Luv of Art.
My Minds Eye's new Lost & Found line.

Now...don't be shy, say hi!
Have a lovely day...

I giggled....I LOVE THEM!!!! Now I have to keep a few cans sitting around!!!

Wishing you a great day!!! :-)
