#35 Paperchase it ain’t

Think I’m going to do that last one this year dear family.

So here are the pins that inspired my kitchen based project: doily paint bag, potato and celery stamper

The bag worked out well, although my pink paint of choice didn’t give much of a contrast with the white bag. I didn’t have a large stencil so free handed the M-

I love the idea of using a cookie cutter to make potato (or sweet potato in my case as you can see below) stamps, this was so easy and would be a great project for kids. On the other hand I’m not sure how the celery people did theirs so well – no matter how much I dried the celery my paint just ended up watery and the whole thing looked kinda rubbish…not a great loss, I’ll stick to eating it with peanut butter instead!xxRuth
