I finished these paintings last night, and I couldn't wait to share!  I'm in the process of turning my living room into a craft room, and I wanted to decorate the walls with my own art in bright pink and green.  I love simple lines with a Hello Kitty kind of feel, so I sketched out 4 of my favorite snacks and then traced over them with white puffy paint and let it dry for 24 hours.

Then I used cheap old reliable acrylic paint and colored them in, and let that dry. After that, I covered it all with Matte Mod Podge and sprinkled it with glitter.  I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic for the coffee and tea to make them look liquid. 

This is an incredibly inexpensive project, but the results are fabulous!  Each painting is 14"x14".
