Creative Cats Tuesday

Last night I really wanted to make a pegboard for a friend that just had a baby. I went running with a neighbor and I was so wiped out afterwards that I didn't really have the energy to do it. Joe asked me what I was thinking about and then he went and made one for me. I only had to do the fun painting part! That was the coolest of cool. I was wondering what it would be like to paint with a sponge. I figured that I use sponge brushes all the time, so why not a regular sponge? I'll tell you why not, because it leaves little shreds on what you are painting. It's actually not all that bad if you wipe it with a damp rag right after to get all of the shreds off. It goes really quickly. I used the outline of a vinyl sticker for a stencil and painted a thin coat of the blue before the green to get the good crisp line. It's fun to practice doing things for boys because everything I make turns out kind of girly.

  1. Oh I like what you did! Most of the tutorials I find are for girl things.

  2. Hi Poppy, cute pegboard, I too find it harder to make crafty things for boys than girls. I've linked up a cute girly wall plaque I made for my niece, I hope you like it
