I used an old paint brush to texture the clay. I may add something more later. . .
I'm going to wait a while before I cut the stones. Last time I did it too soon and got some drag marks that I didn't like. I'm trying to make a stacked stone wall treatment. Something like this one from TheStoneStore.
Another messy project I have going today is painting the paper I need for my 12 foot (12 inch) palm trees. This paper is very thin and tears easily. It makes great flowers but I'm not so sure about leaves? I usually make my tropical plants out of masking tape. I may have to try something else? I want to try out my new Martha Stewart fringe scissors too.
Hope you have fun today! Go ahead. Make a mess!
