We had a LOOOOONG weekend where I am so after a lot of food & family (yes my family is very food orientated) I’m back!  With some no-water-required marbling!  This was a new technique for me & I need more practice but I’m happy with how it turned out – 1st I mixed the black & white & swirled it around to make the ‘marbling’, then painted the rest over.

Rainbow Branches

We all need a little bit of rainbow on Fridays.  Colours were sponged on & branches were hand drawn with a tiny detailing brush.

I ran out of ideas again, :( sorry folks.  This is a super simple lace stripe across a pink base, that’s all I could muster up.  :(  Yes, it’s not a sticker or a decal, I hand drew this on with a tiny brush.

Hey everyone, how was your weekend?  So I’m finally taking a break from green polish & switching to a bit of blue.  I started with the white base & sponged on the blue, before adding a sprinkle of glitter (which was a gift from a dear friend & fellow lacquerhead, thanks Sharon!) & finally adding the dots.

It’s my first time working with loose glitter so as always, it was gritty blue carnage on my table & most of the glitter went where I didn’t want it to, or didn’t stick properly.  Sigh.  Need to experiment a smidgen more.
