Now I hope you want to see a brand new idea & its tutorial..So lets see what I have been done :)
You will need;
A Mug
4 colors of Paints(I use folkart from Plaid)
Mod Podge Sparkle( sealer)
Glitter paint & brushes
Dry Branch
Paper & scissor
patience during its making :)
~~ Process ~~

I was not having pink paint,so I mix a few red in white color for the light pink can take pink otherwise..apply & wait until dry!
Then I add some red glitter paint over it(I think it was better without glitter)the creamy look was also fine!
lets draw the wording Grow with green outline & Heart with red color.

Fill the outline & write the message”GROW LOVE” & then fill the space with some doodles!

Important thing now!

After completing design, You Have To Seal It With Any Sealer & as you know I am a fan of Mod Podge..So I apply Sparkle :)

Some glass stones are STOLEN by me from my brother’s fish aquarium..Sorry my poor fishies..I hope I didnt hurt any of you :)
If you are in a mood of stealing colorful stones from your fish aquarium,be careful, Dont disturb any fish..
Check my Mod Podged Stones Tutorial for this purpose!
