sponging and stenciling

lately cosmetic sponges have been my go-to tools for painting...i love the subtle texture they impart and the rectangular shape. they're great for blending colors too. for this atc, i just picked up both colors at the same time and started dabbing them on to my card stock.

after it was dry, i laid a flower template on top and spritzed some iridescent ink spray over it for a little extra texture and sparkle.


  1. I love the colors of the book...what kind of paint did you use? (the sponging and stecniling yellow/orange one).
    I so enjoy watching your bubbly nature on the PJ show; I've only caught 2 now. I heard it mentioned that you ARE or WERE going thru a divorce? I was married 33 years til divorced in the year 2000. It is hard to stay upbeat at times...crafting helps to lose track of time or outer thoughts...

  2. Thanks - I use Liquitex soft body acrylics. Divorce is in process and amicable!
