Project: Dandelion




So I decided it was time redo my main bathroom colors. I decided on tan/blue/brown tones. I'm very pleased with the turn out. I had canvas boards just waiting to be put to use. So I soaked muslin fabric in boiled water that had lots of tea bags to tint the water so the fabric dyed to a nice beige/tan color. Then stapled it to the canvas. Seriously why not make your own? you could buy one already made with art on it at the store for $30+ bux or more. But I wanted my own unique original flair! I miss doing art. I usually am best at doing pencil sketching & charcoal. So I wanted to try out acrylic painting. I love dandelions. And looked at lots of pictures of them. Then I just collaborated the pics I liked. I actually free-handed the dandelion myself. Which was risky in case I messed up. But i went for it! ~and it turned out quite awesome!!! I LoVe it! What do ya think?! It was exactly what I wanted for the last perfect touch to the finished decor. Oh yeah! (Click to enlarge for detail.)

Sher, that's awesome! Just incredible! Way to make your own! I'm all for doing something myself rather than paying for it! Great job!
