It all started the other day when I got a real hankerin' for some of those sugary fruit jelly candies that you can only buy in the candy shop. Don't those sound good???
I also just got the cutest new pad of paper - it's the "Sweet" stack by DCWV and it has a ton of cute papers including these adorable glittery fruity ones.
Then I found some plain chipboard circles - about an inch and a half in diameter. It all went downhill from there :)
I came home and got into my hubby's acrylic paints - he has this whole shoebox full of paints from back in the day when we used to paint those little pewter Dungeons & Dragons and Mechwarrior figurines. (Don't judge me, ok?) So I used BILE GREEN and HOBGOBLIN ORANGE and MANE YELLOW. . . I did save DRAGON SCALE RED and PALADIN BLUE for another day. I am sure that I will find use for them!
I painted the little chipboard circles and used a white Galaxy Marker to make the rinds and the sections. Then I topped them off with some yellow, orange and green sugar glitter - they turned out all sugary and yummy looking - good enough to eat!
Not bad for a weekend's work - we did have to skip the first four-wheeling adventure of the year due to bad weather. But we enjoyed a lovely evening of BBQ and card playing, in four inches of fresh fallen snow tonight! Hooray for spring break!
