I didn't pack quite as many things onto my tag as Tim did in his example.  I had all the stuff, but I just didn't like the way it looked quite as much.  I *did* obtain a jar of multi-medium for this month.  And then opened the drawer where I keep my painting stuff to find that I did indeed already have a jar, and it was sitting in there with the gesso.  (At least I wasn't going crazy, thinking I'd already bought it!)  If I had it to do over again (a third time!), I might get the smaller bottle with the nozzle applicator, though.  I was using it to attach small fiddly things, and I think it would have been a little cleaner, than how I was using it with a small paintbrush.  Oh well!

As we head into June, I'm going to try to be a little more timely with the challenges I *do* opt to do, rather than waiting 'til the end of the month.  :-)  (And if it rains as much this week as they're predicting, my next post may be quite soon indeed!)

'Til next time,
