FingerFood's Theme Buffet - Freestyle Barry M Paisley

Hello everyone! I'm back!!! Sorry to say I missed out on last week's prompt - something had to give and I decided it was more polite (how very British!) to skip my own challenge rather than anyone else's! Anyhoo, I'm back, still under the weather, but with the super exciting news that I am now part of The Digit-al Dozen. You have no idea how thrilled I am - well, you probably do as I haven't stopped going on about it since I received the invitation, but its a big deal to me and something I aspired to, so it'll take me a while to adjust :)

So, on to today's prompt - Freestyle! I fancied a paisley so picked out a set of my favourite Barry M colours and got to work! The base is two coats of Greenberry. Once that was dry I painted in the paisley shapes in white and then dotted the border of each shape with Indigo and an inner border with Fuchsia. I then added in some little flowers with Tangerine and Cobalt Blue before finishing with Seche Vite.





So there you have some summery, neon-ish, freestyle paisley. Loving these and would love to keep them on for a while but duty calls :p 

Be sure to check out all the other fab freestyle manis - there are some great designs on show this week!

  10. I love the idea to make the paisley edges out of dots rather than fine lacework - almost looks achievable! Your color choices are spot-on as always. These are gorgeous!
