Fun with Paint Swatches



Blog Candy HERE


Today was a loooong day, and fun. We left in the morning, renewed our lease, went to the post office, then to a craft store, then saw Toy Story 3, went to eat at P.F. Chang's (VERY good food!!!), went to Home Depot, where Sean was picking up some paint and I saw the PAINT SWATCHES...BINGO!!! I have been wanting some of those for a while, since Diva Night over my upline's place where we made card using paint swatch, you can see it if you go to my post of 7/29 :) where I went year pack and pulled the cards I posted on the same day last year.
Then we went to FRY's to pick up new home phones, since our died. :D Then went grocery shopping, then I was so tired and took a nap.
One lesson I learned today is that if you are planning to do a lot of walking, do NOT wear new shoes, even if they are Clark's (supposedly should be very comfortable), my feet are KILLING me.
Anyway, I was planning today to play with some watercoloring, but since I picked up these swatches (quite few of them) I HAD to play with them, and here are few card I made tonight using the swatches. SO FUN!
Supplies are under each card.

  5. OMGoodness! No wonder you were an Artisan finalist! I have to try this ..... I'm so in love with color that I pick these up just to have the colors in my hands, and buy multiple spools of thread the same way!
