While I was fretting over the little painted piece the other night, I added a few more beads after the facing was applied. I was not happy with the lack of contrast between the blossoms and the background. Finally, this morning, I decided to just PAINT. I'm calling it done now.
Katherine sent me a message to check out a scrap-booking blog ..... it had a NEAT-O idea for creating one of a kind stencils. I drew this with a hot glue gun on a silicone sheet (can also use parchment paper). After the glue is cool and hard, it peels right off. I'm going to use it with a little spray paint.
I love it when I can jump right in and try a project that uses only common household objects.
