Rock #45 Trust God




I saw something similar to this design on Pinterest.  I decided to paint the decorations similar to what I saw on Pinterest.  I then added the words Trust God.  #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment

Rock #44 Jewel Art

This rock was also painted with the platinum paint to give the rock a shimmer.  I then used outdoor Mod Podge to glue down the jewels on this.  Sealed with Krylon. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment

Rock # 43 Stop and Enjoy the beauty of life

This rock was really cool looking before it was painted (it doesn't really show up in the pic).  I covered it with platinum paint and it gave it a shimmer.  I then used sharpies to make the design and write the sayings. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment

Rock #42 Encouring Words






For this one, I was testing out my new CraftSmart Paint Pens that I got from Michael's for $8 for the set.  I wrote the words (Love, Trust, Believe, Inspire, and Smile) on the rock each in a different colored pen.  I then used some of the other pens to fill in the space with some dot flowers. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment

Rock #41 Purple with Lines



I was testing some ideas I had on this rock.  First I put rubber bands around the rock, trying to make them as flat against the rock as possible.  I then used spray paint to paint it purple.  After it dried, I took off the rubber bands.  The results weren't quite what I was expecting, so the rock sat on my table for a long time as I debated on just completely starting over with the rock or not.  I decided I would paint each line a different color.  It turned out ok, but not my favorite. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment
This was originally abandoned outside of Coloramo on Horizon.

Rock #40 Sprial Rainbow Dots

It's kind of hard to see in the picture, but the dots start in the middle and sprial around the rock.  The dots spread out the further away from the center it gets.  I want to try this technique again, but fill in the spaces, so it's more like a defined line. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment

Rock #39 Enjoy Life

I used left over paint from several different rocks to paint the background on this rock.  It sat on my table for quite some time because I couldn't decide what to do with it.  I decided to write "Enjoy Life" on it. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment
