A little bit of recycling ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I have wanted to start trying this for some time and finally here is my first go …
Yes I recycled a herb pot into a paintbrush storage pot
It was a great learning experience!

Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Inspired by a Song Pink by Aerosmith
Pink, it’s my new obsession, yeah; Pink, it’s not even a question;
Pink, on the lips of your lover; ‘Cause pink is the love you discover;
Pink, ‘cause you are so very; Pink, it’s the colour of passion
‘Cause today it just goes with the fashion; Pink, it was love at first sight;
Yeah pink, when I turn out the light; And pink gets me high as a kite;
And I think everything is going to be alright; No matter what we do tonight!

Vintage Stamping Challenge #41 Splatters & Drips
We had a large empty container which held dried parsley when my husband said this any use to you?! I have trained him well lol! So I grabbed a thin piece of white card, snippet white card, Spectrum Noir AquaTints, Tim Holtz Distress ink pad, and some lovely Rubber Dance stamps, a post it, and then the final step of white and red acrylic paint. It was so much fun to create, so much fun and I got to create another pot for my paint brushes.
I stamped the large circle bubble with Tim Holtz Distress ink onto the A5 card and dried with my heat tool. I stamped the large journal bubble several times on to a Post It notes and cut out to use as masks. I used the red from the Beautiful Grunge Spectrum Noir AquaTints, adding it in layers, so some areas are pinker in colour than other parts and some are more like a deep rouge colour. I added small flicks of gold from the Essentials set and removed the Post It Masks before leaving it to one side to dry. Once dry I added the Post It masks again and created two runny acrylic paint washes which I flicked here and there. I grabbed the little set of nine solid bubbles from the same set and stamped onto white card snippet and once dry I cut them out and glued them randomly onto the background piece. Once everything was completely dry I used the red AquaTints and circled each of the bubbles. I dried it then glued the paper onto my tube and I’ve a new storage tub for some of my paintbrushes!
