Paint Party Friday #16

This week´s colourful progress.This week´s theme at Happysnappy´s: playing with masking tape.
First I used masking tape to mark the yellow section, using the 1/3 rule the wrong side up (deep rich red is going to be at the top). Yes, I was too enthusiastic and went over even over the masking tape. No worries.
Step two: place masking tape of three different widths in vertical bands, alternating them.
Step three: take one every other tape away.
Step four: ready to go on and paint the unmasked places red.

July 1st is a good moment to pause and have a look around. Just as Christine Kane writes in her latest newsletter. Here´s what she said:

You're at the halfway mark!
"Yup, the year is half over. The glass is half full. If this were a play, we'd be at intermission now!

Have you been living your dreams? Taking action on your intentions? Thriving in the present moment?

If you're nodding right now - then congratulations! Take a moment to breathe, smile and realign with your goals and values.
If you're NOT nodding, then ask yourself gently if you've been making excuses, or if you're letting your fear stop you. Then, take some time right now to set some intentions for these final six months of 2011 - and start taking simple do-able action steps. You'll be so happy you did!"

You've encouraged me to get out and buy masking tape (we ran out MONTHS ago!). lol

I love the effect created by using the different sizes and once the red goes on, look out, chica! I love it!

Thanks for the inspirational boost. I just copied and pasted some of that onto Facebook to inspire my friends as well.

Happy PPF!!
