It’s time!!! Tomorrow is the first day of August and the first day of the next Painted Rock Challenge. I am still struggling personally to complete ALL 30-31 rocks each month. I thought July was going to be my first month to complete them all; but with the kids and work and travel it just didn’t happen. I’d love to say that August is my month, but with school starting back next week I know the likelihood of that actually happening is pretty slim!
…but I will try! The only thing that keeps me going is seeing all your beautiful and creative painted rocks each day. Your requests for me to keep this going. I’m so thankful for each of you!
Some fun dates this month include Ice Cream Sandwich Day (Aug 1st), National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day (Aug 4th), Left Handed Day (Aug 13th), and National Honey Bee Day (Aug 19th). School is also starting back this month in many states (my kids start back next week) and football is starting up again!

(Amazon referral links) This past month I experimented with a few new supplies. I tested out some gel pens and some ultra fine point Pigma Micron Pens. Both worked great over acrylic paint. You do need to spray them with sealer instead of brushing on the sealer to prevent them from running or bleeding. What new material did you use this month? What would you like to try? I’ve seen others use colored pencil and I’m going to test those out this month.
