Ok now for visiting my blog today ... im going to show you 5 ways to apply paint without using a paint brush!
The brayer. Terrific for laying a thin layer of paint to a surface, and Looks great over surfaces with a bit of texture, as it only paints the raised surfaces.
A Palette knife. great for layering thick coats of paint, and paints mixed with texture paste. Used like a Bread Knife, to spread the medium onto the surface.
Foam Stamps .. great for applying paint, in a repetitive design.
Bubble Wrap is a great way to get a bit of variety in your paint. Simply brayer the paint onto the bubbly side of the bubble wrap and dab it onto your surface.
A credit card. (an old one preferably ....one that is maxed out will work as well :) ) simply pour a little paint onto your surface and pull the paint towards you using the edge of the card. Gives a great effect if you use two or more colours of paint.
And just one more, because this picture is too cute! ..
Finger painting .. get back to where our creativity started, those years where feet were allowed to come out the persons head, and they were allowed to have 15 fingers on one hand, the time before we were taught to conform. its time to get our fingers dirty , and release that inner child and create, Have Fun and create! No right ....no wrong .. just create!
It is our mission to provide a place for all artists to not only collaborate, but to join together in a journey that will enable a peaceful soul and a free spirit.....come to learn the true meaning of ART....

A while back Melissa Goodsell Was sharing her Twirly Skirts she had made, She also Shared the link to where you can get the pattern. I loved her skirts , and even though i am so not a sewing type person, I read thru the destructions, and I had a go .. and I love how it turned out!
And Jorja Loves it too .. She didint even let me finish it before she had it on and was outside for photos, there are some threads hanging on the front of the skirt which have since been trimmed off.
