Challenge 7: Paint, Ink, or Mist


Who doesn't love to get their fingers all painted and inky? That's how you know you're having fun ;) Now that you own every color of Glimmer Mist, in triplicate, even all the discontinued colors, quit being a “collector” and use it! Who cares if you have the “vintage” colors if you never use them. Paints and inks can also dry out over time–that's a total waste when that happens. So pull out your Tim Holtz Crackle Paint, Making Memories Acrylics, Glimmer Mist, Diamond Dust, Markers, Copics, Cat Eyes, Stickles, and Stampin Up Ink Collection and put them to use.

1. Create layouts, cards or projects using PAINT, INK, or MIST.

2. Upload your layouts, cards or projects that you created featuring PAINT, INK, or MIST to an online gallery or your blog (please link back to my blog to this challenge if you like).

3. Post a link to your layouts, cards or projects on this blog post using Mr Linky (it will show up at the bottom of this blog post) by Saturday April 17, 2010 by Midnight PST.

If you don't get your layout or project done in time, you can still do it. The goal is to get something done using the supplies you already have.

Each time you post a comment with a link to your project you will be entered to win so make sure you post each project or layout separately. The first prize is a $100 gift cert to my etsy shop Hydrangea Hippo, with more prizes to come! Here's a little more inspiration for you on the topic of PAINT, INK, or MIST:

Created a background by inking a bird stencil:


Glimmer Misted and then cut out Patterned Paper and Grungeboard:


Used some Souffle Markers:

Show me what you got, your ideas for using PAINT, INK, or MIST. You don't have to use alot of PAINT, INK, or MIST on one page, just use them somewhere, even if it is just as the background.

I hope you'll join me for this fun adventure. Here's to getting lots of layouts done, using our stash, and making room for new goodies!!
