Painted Simplicity

I liked going simple with paints, because it doesn't have to compete as much with the rest of the embellishments that I might have used had I been going for something more involved. It does its job, understated or not, and tends to add a lot. This week's challenge really pushed me to go more abstract, although I didn't expect it to end up quite like this! Conclusion: I think if I get in a rut - doing the same old thing on my layouts - I can turn to my paints to pull me out of it!

And speaking of alternatives, our altered projects this week are really sweet.. and very practical! A magnetic board, a frame, and an advent "calendar"- check them out and be inspired by all this creativity!
