You buy something, thinking that'll be great for.................. and it stays amongst your stash untouched for the next 6 months?
I did just that with Viva paints, have a drawer full of croco, ferro etc etc and hardly touched them. With the fairies over at The Craft Barn showing us all their ideas with Viva this week I thought I'd drag the paints out of obscurity and have a play with them. The tutorials have been great and stimulated me into having a go with the Terra paints - designed to make things look like terracotta
What do you think, does it look like a little terracotta fridge magnet?
This is what it looked like originally
Very cheap and very plasticky
I was quite pleased with the transformation so thought I'd try some more plasticky things
They really do look like pot plant tags and the paint adds a weight which makes them feel better.
There's a new challenge today at The Craft Barn, time for you to dust off those viva paints and get stuck in I hope!
Anyway I've got to dash, off to set up for the Loving Ink craft retreat this weekend
See you soon
