This week of blogging seems to be turning into a review of last week, lol. Monday I talked about Saturday, Tuesday I blogged about Sunday, and today, its about Friday. I am finding I have lots of "bare" spots on the walls of my house. And I am keeping them like that on purpose. I don't want to put stuff up just for the sake of putting it up.
I want to wait and hang things I really love. (I know if I hang something I won't take it down!) Friday, I decided to do a quick painting for a spot in my room. I bought a large canvas a while back and it was perfect for this spot. It is about 8 x24in.
I blended lots of shades of blue for the background, then made petals from the pages of an old book. I watercolored each petal, then Mod Podged them. I think it turned out rather sweet. It took less then an hour to make and it is a wonderful pop of teal on my wall. I am still getting used to seeing it hang there, though. Hmmm... I wonder if there is another spot I should hang it?
