Yes, I'm learning how to make a total balls up by splashing paint here and there haha :)

Whoo hooo! Now do a painting with your feet or something, like I, and APlace, did a few months back. Here's a good idea (I might try this) see how many paint brushes you can hold in your mouth and still paint something recognisable with them! I'm up for that one! I'm so going to do that!

You know those cards that get shoved through the letterbox at Christmas, by mouth and foot painters? I might try to paint a Christmas card with my body-parts. Hmmmm... yup... it's a thing.
("Foot and mouth painters"! Ew... that sounded like people who paint of pictures of diseased cattle, didn't it??? That's strange.)

As long as you're not putting the brushes in dodgy places, you should be fine. I think I'd would throw up if I turned over the card to read 'painted by a bottom' hahaha! I couldn't do the paint brush challenge, I'm already 'challenged' lol ;) I go to paint, pick up brush with intention of putting paint on paper; my special brain says 'pick up phone and plop it into the fish tank'. Though, could be funny to see what I ended up doing. Either the house gets a repaint or the fish get 3G :)

I know a REALLY dodgy place to put a brush!!! :O

... In a Pot Noodle tub full of turps... right next to the laundry sink. The turps dissolved the plastic pot and ran into the laundry... *ouch* that was not a good day. Made the clothes smell fresh though...mmmmm... painty-fresh.

I must say, this special brain of yours sounds like fun! It probably isn't... but it sounds it! :)

I did not know turps melted plastic! See? Learn something new everyday. I bet that painty fresh smell stuck around for a bit ;) Yes, my brain can be a total pain in the neck, but I do see the funny side usually. Well, today it's on form lol. Tonight, after celebrating to myself for finishing a rather tricky drawing ( will upload tomorrow), I thought I'd do a bit of grooming and put a fringe back into my hair. Well, all was going well till I decided to fetch the little mirror from upstairs, on my way back I fell, the mirror ended up across the room. The cat nearly shit herself with the noise and is still hiding under my bed upstairs. I also ended up with a lop sided fringe...I'm starting a new fashion ;) the upside is when the 'Alice in wonderland ' vision starts, it makes for entertaining viewing :D I mean, who knew a cat could have 3 heads? I also broke my toe ( again) the other day walking into my kitchen and thinking I could somehow walk through steps instead of stepping up onto them. I am such a clumsy pillock! ( auto spell tried changing pillock to pollock) :)

This is the picture I mentioned in my journal. Feel free to critique as I'm new to watercolour. Thanks :)
