Welcome To The SOC Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Scraps of Color Creative Blog Hop! Join us for a weekend of fun, creativity and prizes! All weekend long you’ll have the chance to create fun projects, be inspired and win! Get your crafty mojo flowing...just follow the 1st SOC Creative Team Blog Hop!

If you are here and following the blog hop then you are in the right place. However if you have just happened upon my blog and would like to join in the hop please start at the beginning of the hop here and work your way through each blog. Please leave blog love (comments) along the way and become a follower of the blogs you like so that you can be notified of their new creations and updates!

My project for the hop is :

Some visual tips to help you get started:

1.Float your color around the edge of the tag - you can practice on wax paper or acetate.

2.Practice double loading your brush and creating a "C" stroke, which will be the stroke for your petals:

3.Randomly paint your flowers ... I like to stick with odd numbers:

If you don't want to paint your leaves and stems, use your rub ons and stickles ... and like I did, use that BLING!!! for your flower centers...add ribbon...and you're done.

And I’m offering a prize for the lucky winners version of a Welcome Spring Simple Flowers Painted Tag. The winner will be chosen by an auto-generator.


1 - Make sure you read all the rules at Scraps Of Color Espire.

2 - Become a follower of my blog, Kenyatta's Brown Sugar Babies Talk.

2 - Your tag must have the main elements painted. Its okay if you add some scrapping elements, but I'd like to see the majority of your tags painted using either watercolor or acrylic paints. Sorry, but no markers for this challenge.

3 - When you're done, post your entry on your blog, and make sure you link back here. Let me know by posting in the comments so I can come check it out.

Remember that some of the other SOC Creative Team Members are offering blog candy and you never know where you'll find it. So be sure to visit each participating blog. I’ve made it easy for you to follow, just click the appropriate link below. Thank you for joining us for the 1st SOC Creative Team Blog Hop!
