I know its bad for you when you drink it in excess but I do like a nice cup of coffee, though I'm sure what I call nice wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, bad use of words ...sorry.
Well I normally drink decaff coffee , which I take quite weak and milky, mum always says for my tea and coffee I might as well be drinking milk let down with warm water. I do however have some coffee I treat myself to once and sometimes twice a day. My first treat is how I start my day and if I've had a bad day then I have another mid afternoon, I love my skinny latte or cappuchino instant mixes and though the tin is nescafe, I also don't mind the unsweetened Kenco and Asda's but definitely unsweetened and skinny if possible and if I find some that is also decaff I 'm in heaven, what a sad life I lead, don't all agree at once please be kind, lol.
Sorry digressing again. I decided that I would make my coffee tin a bit brighter and a lot cuter too by decorating it. Now my kitchen has beech units and black marble effect worktops, was going to have shiny worktops but was advised that they get scratched really easily so they are matt. They will probably sound awful but they have like watery swirly splodges in them and have like a blue grey tint with touches of lilac and like a yellowy ochre in them if you look real close, so when I decorate my kitchen these are the colours I use. The first time I had all pale blue walls and the second the paint colours were called bracken and lilac mist. I wanted my tin to blend in with my kitchen though the blues I used are actually the wrong blue far far too bright but I still love it and I can always change it when I redecorate.
The image I chose is a Sassy girl lurve latte well what else?
I used a 12x12 sheet of lilac paper with swirls on I think its papermania but not 100% sure so please correct me if I'm wrong. I coloured my girl with promarkers and sakura glaze pens and added some glitter sparkle to her shirt. The blue glitter paper is from my stash and I think the heart paper came from the same stack as the purple. I then punched some yellow hearts and stuck them around my image. I made 2 images the same and duplicated the layout so I have the same on both sides of my tin.
I would like to enter my tin into the following challenges:-
The sugar bowl-layout
CES-bold and bright
raise the bar-purple, blue and yellow
Order of opus gleui-use a key, heart or something you love
totally gorjuss-as you like it
if the shoe fits-anything but a card
