I have had these paints for quite awhile now but I have not used them as much as I would like. I have done a few little things like the projects listed here and here. Recently I was asked by the CI team to be featured on their blog. Can I get a big woohoo??!!!! I was in the midst of all the birthday craziness around here but still I couldn't turn it down. I sat down to try to make a card for my son. I had my mind on about a million other projects that needed to be done and I just couldn't focus...big FAIL. So I decided to wait. But I did set my paints and tools on my table thinking that maybe that would help inspire me. That didn't really work out so well either. All it got me was two kids begging to paint. So about a week later I was lying it bed and all of a sudden it just hit me! I was going to do a layout. So that being decided the ideas just started flowing. I got out my Gypsy and started designing. The layout was totally planned. The only problem was that I hadn't chosen a picture yet. Anyone who knows me knows that I usually start with the pics and get inspired from there so this process was very different for me. The next day I went out to the Dungeon (otherwise known as my scrap room or my half of the garage) to have a look at pictures I had. It is very rare for me to do a one pic layout but that is what I had planned. After searching through all my pics and coming up empty handed I was about to give up when I walked by my daughter's playdesk and found this picture.
If you don't have any of these paints yet, I highly recommend them. I love that they dry quickly and have so many uses. If you have some or decide to get some link up your projects to the Creative Inspirations blog and you can be their next featured crafter!
