Hello All! Its been a few weeks, again, since I participated in Paint Party Friday. Hopefully, I’ll be able to join in every week from now on….maybe. ha!
Today, I’m sharing my Poppy painting…I love Poppies! I needed something to fill a space in my dining room so I used my ‘skills’ to make it. + I didn’t want to spend any money. My original plan was to buy this fabric for my dining room curtains but I decided it was to pricey….2 yds = $42. What if I didn’t like it? I’m not one for lots of color and patterns so I was super nervous about spending money on fabric I might not like. So, painting it was the way to go….free!
Here’s a few pics of the process….lots of drying time:
Started with the basics, lots of light colors to kinda sketch it out.
More building and waiting for paint to dry.
I didn’t wait long enough and this is what happened! I was bummed until it dried completely, now I love it! That’s the way it goes with Watercolors.
And the finished product. Now, I just need a cool, unique, frame for it. Oh, did you see the drip? Do you love it? Me too!
This is where it’s going…right next to my new striped burlap curtains. I sewed them up this morning before it was light outside.
What do you think? Needs a funky frame right?!
