Playing with fire!

no not really...but actually this post should really be titled a happy accident. A while ago while prepping the frame workshop for Pickleberry Crafts, I sprayed the frame on the floor , like you do, on loads of newspaper, (mainly because the Packing Pixie gets quite cross when I paint the carpet!) , and happily sprayed away with my mica sprays. I left it to dry, and  lifted the newspaper and went to throw it away, when I noticed how the sprays had covered a headline on the paper... My did I get excited! lol. I have had it sitting on my desk for a while, and after reading Gerrie's post yesterday where she has recycled some paper towel, thought I would show you it. Much too good to tear up or die cut, so I mounted it on some paper, and here is the result....
I see myself looking at headlines now with a view to painting them! You can get Crafty Notions sprays now in the shop.. I do have to add some colours swatches, but they are all sooo good, I truly don't think it matters as the colour names describe them exactly!
Have a great day!

How FABulously Artsy! I love when something like this happens. Looks like I'll have to change my paper towels for newspaper headlines, can you imagine the possibilities! thanks for sharing GF!

This looks really cool - I can't wait to see how you incorporate it into one of your projects.
