For some reason, I feel the need to fight the obvious. But that's my problem, I suppose :)
I really needed to play with my H2O Twinkle paints, so I splashed on a round coaster (information on them is on my Facebook page, then tangled with a Sharpie permanent marker when I found the absorbent nature of the coaster wasn't the best thing for my good pens:
When I was at Joann's last week poking around (you never know what you may find that you didn't know you needed) I came across a package of paper flowers in the children's craft section. They are about 4"x6" and were less than two dollars for 18 of them. They have a backing that peels off so you can stick them onto something later if you like. The paper is slick, so I found I had to be careful of smearing as I worked. After it was dry, it didn't smear any longer. These were first done with the twinkle paints too:
A little odd, but something different to try anyway.
