CQC #140: HAPPY


Happy Wednesday!

Aren't these colors yummy for this week's Colour Q #140 challenge?! Although I was at Target today and saw this towel and it looks much better in the picture, hehe! 

I did do my first "splattering" technique on this, what do you think?! The splattering piece started out larger, but it kept getting trimmed down as I messed up, I mean, as the design changed. *wink* It was a wee bit messy, do y'all put it in a box or something to catch the "over-splatter"?

Well, I better move it, move it. I have the place torn up, trying to make space for 16 boxes/tubs of teacher stuff in this tiny house, sigh. Much of it has been in the living/dining room since February when I switched from classroom teacher to RTI reading teacher and started bringing stuff home. But I've been purging stuff like crazy, emptying one entire hall closet, and taken one carload of stuff to Good Will already, so it can be done! My goal is to be finished by midnight, hopefully earlier since dh goes to bed before then! hehe!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Your splattering turned out fabulous! I usually do mine with newspaper underneath to avoid a mess.

Good luck with the purge!

Hi, thanks so much for your kind visit to my blog. Love the splattering on this - it suits the bright and bold 'happy' down to the ground.

LeAnne said...

LOVE your splatter, and yes, I think you should do it in a box or the sink or something!!! Maybe even the bathtub! Anyway, it's very cool and I am so glad you played with the CQC colors this week!
