Artsnacks and Smile Create Repeat creations.

So I'll start with smile, create repeat as I did that one first and this month it was acrylic here is what I made and the contents of the box..
Here is what I got we got two acrylics, some canvas boards and paint brushes
It was quite a challenge using only 2 paint colours but I was really impressed how many tones and colours I got by mixing my colours and adding water
Next here is artsnacks..
Here are the supplies watercolor paint, a zig brushpen, a paintbrush and a watersolubke graphite pencil.
Here is what I made I did the octopus with the pencil and his eye with the pen and for the background I used the paint along with the marker which I colored onto a piece of glass and picked up with the brush and mixed with the paint.
So that's it for now thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Some ATC's I made and more Smashbook art

I joined a few swaps on swapbot and here are the ATC's I made...
A fantasy book themed ATC I did tuck everlasting.

A pig themed ATC the quote is Mai West

A tree on book paper ATC

This one was a burlap ATC
Next off I did an acrylic painting in my smashbook of a fox on a tree background..

I loved the tree background and thought it needed an animal in the foreground.
  So there are a couple things I've been up to thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

I painted my phone case

  So my 5 year old cell phone finally bit the dust the other day and I decided it was probably time to get a smart phone before the boyfriend and I kill each other because I don't know how to look up directions on his phone. So anyway I got the phone but the only case I could find that covered the screen, which I knew I'd probably smash otherwise, only came in black so I decided to paint it and here is how that worked out...
 Above are the spray paints that I used I made sure to get paint that was meant for plastic. I bought a matte white to start out with then a clear satin finish to seal it up with then I got my phone ready to paint...

 So I got the inside all taped off but I got ahead of myself and completely forgot to give the case a light sand and cleaning before I painted it but it seemed to work out okay, I was lucky, but don't forget this step.

So again I got ahead of myself and forgot to take a picture of it right after I painted it white but I did 4 coats of white and it was white then I put my design on it...
I used a Posca paint pen which I got in an art snacks box, any acrylic paint pen would do though I'm sure, and drew on an octopus and here it is.

The back

The front.
After my design was on my case I gave it 2 coats of clear spray paint to seal it and called it done.
   So there it is thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
