Art Challenge

Monday, June 28, 2010

Lisa had an art challenge to see what we did with a simple soap box. BTW, that soap is awesome along with the lip balm by that company! As I tooled through Target, my little one and I came out with a Big Cart full. Sigh..I never do well at that store.

My inpsiration came from the french paper which I set off with some watercolors and the lace dyed with walnut ink--I did a dip and pull with it. I'm now going to use it showcase my vintage buttons. Thanks Lisa for the challenge!


Have a great Monday! It's a short Holiday week for me; although painting my bedroom and working in the garden are on the 'to do' list.

  7. Kris,
    This is very sweet! I'm so with you on the Target runs...I rarely go there anymore mostly because there isn't one convenient, but it also too much of a temptation to buy things I don't need!!! Thanks for sharing...! Xo, Sue
