How flippin fun are those little guys? Ahhh. I sorta loved pet rocks as a kid... googly eyes and all. These are bit more grown up and oh so modern with their chalk art styling. You already know that I heart woodland creatures so I made little cartoony owls on this set but you could do whatever you like. Oh and did I mention these are super easy and virtually mess free??
So, what do you need to make a set of your own?
Simple: black river rocks (I got mine on clearance for $0.50 at Jo-Ann Fabrics!) and a white paint pen. Galaxy markers are my fave for something like this because you can get an assortment of colors, they work incredibly well on dark surfaces and they are permanent. Woot woot!
Draw your little heart out, girlfriend. The paint dries super duper quickly so you don't have to worry about smudges. Even so, I'd imagine that nail polish remover would take care of that :)
I went all crazy like and drew a random assortment of owls. I am mad about them. They are all sketchy and funky and they make my heart go pitter patter. Since the marker is permanent, you don't need to seal them. I did though (just to be safe) and sprayed a fine layer of acrylic sealer on them.
I'm not 100% sure how they'll be used this autumn but I'm not worried. For now, I tossed them on the kitchen table in a retro wire bin with some leaves. Works for me :)
What do you think?
