Don’t you hate when your weekend goes by and you feel like you didn’t sit AT ALL? You do? Me too. And don’t you hate when you ask for Diet Coke and they say, “Is Diet Pepsi okay?” You do? Me too. Diet Pepsi is not the same. You can’t pull the wool over my eyes on this matter. Sorry.
A lot has been going on ‘round these parts. We’ve moved. We went to Disneyland. We’re working double-time. We’ve been sick. It’s just hectic around here and if you’ve talked to us, we probably made you nervous from how wired we’ve been. Well, no more. I hope to be staying in one spot for the next few months. We don’t have any trips coming up and I’m actually stoked ‘bout that.
This last weekend was filled with family, friends, and, of course, work. But I managed to squeeze in a quick lil’ project that I’ve been wanting to make for some time. I’ve been obsessed with gold my entire life and it’s finally making a comeback. Yeah boy.
Are you ready?
I found this great sheer craft paper at Michael’s. It’s like a plastic sheet that can be wiped clean with water. It’s perfect. Get some if you can.
Cut paper into quarters and punch holes in various sizes.
Get some gold paint and coat your paint brush in it.
Lay your paper over the placemat and start to paint like so…
Peel away and start in another place on your mat.
