Hello my friends! I am hoping this finds you having a WONDERFUL, WARM day!! Honestly, it is late morning as I type this and I am having a hard time getting my engine started! LOL I need more coffee. As we near the end of the week, here in Wisconsin our weather is supposed to get bitter cold with wind chills well below zero. I believe this weekend we are fore casted to get -25 below zero with the wind chill. Brrrrr Nothing warms the heart though, more than a smile, so my challenge for you today is to SMILE more! I will work on it too, as I find myself this week tired and probably scowling more than I ought. :)
Today, I am sharing a project with one of my favorite winter stamps! Do you find you gravitate to a certain stamp during different seasons? Well this is the stamp I am using A LOT this year! lol The stamp is from I Brake For Stamps and is called Holiday Squares
I used the Technique Junkie Newsletter and the technique called Sanded Whitewash from the August/ September 2009 issue.
In addition, I used the Creative Inspiration Paints - have you tried these yet? They are soooo creamy, shimmery, versatile and FUN to play with! I just LOVE painting and playing with them.
Here I used the following colors: garnet, charcoal, blue, pumpkin, orange, evergreen
