Painted rock paper weghts

You will need:

  • One decently sized rock
  • Black paint (the thicker the better – I found that Apple Barrel works quite nicely)
  • Sharpie oil based paint pens (plain paint will do also but it’s a bit more difficult to work with).
  • Old newspaper

first you should cover your surface with newspaper or a drop cloth. Now to start you’re going to want to paint the rocks black and let dry for however long the instructions on your bottle say.

Once your rock is dry you can get decorating! Sharpie paint pens are a little bit hard to find. I got mine at Michael’s after a long search. Make sure that that they are OIL based – thankfully they say on the marker (in the pink). They look like this:

For the design I started with a dot and went from there. It looked like this:

Then I just did more around it and this is what it looked looked like finished:

Here’s another one for inspiration!

A New Year’s resolution

This year my resolution is unreasonable, or maybe isn’t. I can’t really tell yet, but I do know that there is definitely going to be a learning curve.

This year my goal is to sew my own clothes. Does that sound crazy?
Ahh… well, for now I’m going to stick to it, and if I actually meet my new year’s resolution, well, that’ll be a first.
