This is for both the MIX59 to use a plastic bag to make a bkg, and the CC469. I was going to skip the CC since I had NOTHING in those colors. What a surprise...when I took out my acrylic paints for the MIX challenge and started playing around, I made my own somewhat close colors. I taped the pkastic bag to newspaper which I used to protect the dining room table. The incident with the "rainbow"tennis shoes has made me a little more careful these days. I put dry wall tape down, brayered with the pistacio, sponged some blue and applied lines of artichoke with a popsical stick. Smashed me paper onto it and let dry. Then I stamped the daisies and highlighted them with white gel pen. This was just the therapy I needed after a "frightful" morning of shopping with my teenage son. The only place I like to shop is a craft store ...clothes shopping gives me hives. My normally sweet natured son turns into the incredable hulk having a bad day when we need to shop (thank god this rarely needs to be done). However, we have a wedding coming up and none og his clothes fit. "Card therapy" is restoring my sanity.
