    Love that effect and juicy colours. Also love the brush pic at top of page. Now…. did you have a play after loading up the brushes?

    • Carolyn Dube August 1, 2014, 2:22 pm

      Actually played before the picture was taken. Wanted authentically painty brushes for the picture!

    Carolyn, you are a genius! And now I have another thing I need to hoard! LOL But I’ll be healthier 🙂

    Loving this!

    Loved the results with your new tool, and the transfer of colours. The journal page looks great, too.
    Just a thought– why not make another stamp on the bottom of your vitamin bottle, and have two stamps in 1?

    Neat. Do you know your Gelli Plate was really clean. What is the sticky thing you cut into? I will have to use a can or something. My vitamins come in packages. Nice work.

    • Carolyn Dube August 3, 2014, 9:10 pm

      It is sticky backed fun foam.

  • Corrine August 3, 2014, 6:15 pm

    Too fun and who doesn’t have one of those bottles hanging around, and good glue. Fun! xox

    I love your honest “just because” during your videos! I feel the same way when I’m creating.
    Thx for posting all the fun stuff…..especially supplies that I’ve not delved into as of now.
    Happy Creating,

    I love this idea ! What did you use to cut and make design – was it foam with sticky backing? Thanks for all you do.

    • Carolyn Dube August 3, 2014, 9:11 pm

      You’re right, it is sticky backed fun foam!

  • Dorothy August 5, 2014, 9:11 pm

    I love the new look of your blog, especially the colorful paint brushes in a row. I so enjoy your blog and your enthusiasm for creative play. It encourages me greatly. Thank you.

    Great idea!! I just happen to throw away at least 10 or more of these every week so I am going to put some of them to good use! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Marjie Kemper August 7, 2014, 6:39 pm

    Super tute… what a great way to use something laying around and make great texture. Happy Printing!
