Hi y'all! Hope the end of the year is winding down for you in a most relaxing way. I have been sleeping in everyday, so I am gonna be hurting come Tues. when the kiddos go back to school! But for now we are enjoying the time off and extra sleep!
Before Christmas I painted this sign to sell at the store I rent a space in. But, when I got done w/ it- I discovered I had painted it to match my house! Does that ever happen to you? I did not
intend to paint it for myself, but the colors turned out perfect for my "new" rug (more on that in another post). So it had to stay here!I painted it first w/ a blue color that I mixed up from some acrylic craft paint. Then I used a paper doily to stencil a lace design and freehanded the fleurs and lettering, etc. Next I sanded it al ittle to give it some age and glazed it w/ R.L. "tea stained" glaze. I added a ribbon and some lace to hang it and up it went on the wall! so there you have it, yet another piece I meant to sell but alas, I cannot part w/ it! At least it's free art for my wall! Thanks for visiting! Y'all come back now ya hear! ;)
