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 Â 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.
I always think about enjoying the evenings on the balcony but the insects don’t let me enjoy them. Whenever you want to sit outside with loved ones and enjoy an evening, I know the lights I put on will not only draw bugs toward it but also put an end to its annoyance. mosquito killer amazon leaving you to pursue your peaceful evening.
What do you think? Needs a funky frame right?!
