Inspired by Lia

Painting purdy pictures la la la la la....ACK! Bad picture eh? lol I was inspired by Lia aka ArtJunkGrl.. on one of her blog posts....where she sits down on her hardwood floor with her kids and a variety of paints and her junk mail....and just paints to her hearts content on little bits of paper to use at a later time in her art creations....

So, I grabbed a handful of those annoying little bits that fall out of magazines...you know the ones...business reply cards....and grabbed random paint colors and went to town.....I think I did about 20 of these yesterday....and it was just so much fun that after the kids got home we did more of the same together at the kitchen table.....they are hooked! lol and so is their mommy hehe...Thanks Lia for such wonderful inspiration! Much Love....

Happy Creating!

Nancy--these are beautiful! Don't tell hubby I had anything to do with it...lol....ha ha...the first time I did this my husband raised his eyebrows. the second, the girls were jumping up and down and haggling over their special "spot" to paint in. I am thinking of doing this this summer with some of their friends! so glad you had fun. now we can have a challenge to make something on them! fun for just getting in the creative mood! Hugs! Lia
