1 LAYER, 2 LAYER, 3 LAYER 4 - A poor girl’s Monet

Paintings, pizzas, slurpees – jealous yet? Picture grade school art class remixed with beer. Two words... Blue Shocker! The sunless island winter inspired a summer themed night full of bright everything! From the pizza toppings to the magazine cut-outs and the iceberg bevies, it was the perfect pick-me-up to the winter blues. Ever watch the movie Chicago? Well we tried, but we were having way too much fun as if we were getting paid to create. Take down your art from Winners and have fun doing a painting that requires no actual talent. Need some creative inspiration? 7-11 slurpee mixed beers. It’s a win-win for everyone. 

Even though we’re crafty, not all our creations are original. Big shout outs to the following sites and/or people for inspiring this ladies night in...
