I had another class in the Distress Renewed series last week and we got good and painty! So much so that I now have green all over one of my shirts – boo. Surprisingly, I don’t normally get dirty – I once wore white from head to toe while doing a Marah Johnson/Creative Imaginations mixed media class and came out of it spotless – true story!

Anyway….. here’s what we made!

We went blendy and drippy and rainbowy for the first one:

I added a great quote with the awesome Teresa Collins alphas:

And we went dry brush crazy for the second!

Dry brushing over cold press watercolour paper makes some amazing texture!

And we finished it off with more stickers from the element sheet and some painted wood veneer stars:

Of course, we played a bit and made card fronts with other Distress Paint techniques too…

Fun times, as always!

We have more of these classes coming up in the fall so if you have any products lying around, wondering what you could do with them, let me know – maybe they’ll be the focus of the next Renewed class!
