speckled...

"Three little speckled frogs, sitting on a speckled log, eating the most delicious flies. 
Yum! Yum! Yum!"

Hello all my wonderful friends!

Sadly we well not be playing with cute little frogs today, but we will be playing with cute little speckles!  And, not just any speckles.  Oh, no sir!  These speckles are CI shimmery speckles!

This is honestly SUPER simple, but also tends to be rather messy... you may want to protect your work space if you don't want to find random polka dots of color all over EVERYTHING. 

Step 1: Mix some Creative Inspirations paint with some water. you want your paint to be nice and runny for this.

Step 2: dip a damp toothbrush into the paint.
(please use common sense.... DON'T brush your teeth with this toothbrush EVER again!!!!  LOL)


Step 3: Slide your finger across the bristles aiming at the project you mean to speckle.... this is where it gets messy. As much as you try to "aim" it will inevitably go wherever it decides to, thereby beautifying everything in reach whether you wanted it shimmery or not. =)

*Sigh*  flecks of gold in a sea of green... so poetic. =)

Easy as 1-2-3, yet an incredibly fabulous effect!!!

I love the speckles of shimmer!  They really make things pop!

Enjoy!
