Colors and Texture

These are three of the colors I'll be using for the coffee shop. "Celery Bunch," "Fudge Truffle," and "Pineapple Upside Down Cake." The celery will be used inside. :D

The 2 ounce bottles of acrylic craft paint aren't large enough to paint a entire house. These 8 ounce jars of custom mix paint cost about three dollars each. It's a good deal.

I tried Sandie's stucco technique again this morning. I ran out of Kleenex (thanks to being sick) so I used one layer of a torn paper towel.

The paper towel is too thick and doesn't look the right scale. A single layer of facial tissue works much better!

I'm practicing on the WalMart rippled wall. I thought maybe adding the stucco would hide the ripples. That didn't happen but I did learn something.

I'll go get some more tissues today as well as another piece of foam core and try again. Office Depot has the nicer foam board. I can get into a LOT of trouble in that store. I'll need to stay focused!

I want to welcome ALL of my new followers and thank everyone who has entered my give-a-way! You have until Saturday to join! :D

Hope you have a lovely day!
