Painting the kitchen in my good jeans was not the best plan, but in an effort to save them, I painted a flower over every splotch.  I think they turned out pretty cool! Plus bonus frenchie...she was very interested in what I was doing on her grass, and she's way more photogenic than her mom,lol.



If you want the whole story, you can find it on my blog.  I just wanted to share my success  Cheesy

I had a stash of speedball screenprinting ink in pearl colors, and mixed something I liked.  The ink is pretty thick though, so I had to water it down to get it to flow.  A couple of those flowers were "experimental", but I got better as I went  Cheesy

What a great way to turn a mishap into a masterpiece!  I bet a lot of women would be interested in buying jeans like these if they saw them in the store too. 

I like the tattoo on your right foot as well!

 They look great. I love the style you did the flowers in. I would have never guessed it was an Oops. Cute pup too!
