It is Winter Break for the kiddos. That translates into them staying up WAY too late and sleeping in until after noon. Seriously. I'm an early riser so that leaves me all morning to hunker down in my studio and get messy - guilt free.
This morning I stumbled upon Claudine's blog post showing her latest installment of the APC challenge. Somehow I missed all of the previous ones, but immediately felt compelled to hop on board and play along with the Distress Paint & tissue paper technique this week.
I rarely pull out the Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord colors I have. I guess I'm just not much of a purple or purplish red person. Decided they needed dusting off today though. Claudine let her paint dry before she applied the tissue. I don't have that kind of patience so just smooshed it down right on top of the wet paint. Since it was still pretty dark after it dried I added some stenciling over the top.
For a little interest I decided to layer the flower and leaves a bit with adhesive foam.
Here's what I used:

I've decided to challenge myself to go back and attempt all of her challenge...not today though. That will be my New Years' artsy resolution. :)
Have a spectacular day!
