The parentals came to town…

Apr 19, 2011

Sat­ur­day, mom and dad came up for a quick vis­it and when they come they always bring fun stuff. Mom paint­ed me a gor­geous paint­ing that will reside in my scrap­room soon so I can see it every­day. I love the col­ors and tex­ture so much. I did  my best to get the col­ors cor­rect but the light­ing is not work­ing with me too well this morn­ing.

The size of the can­vas is 16 x 20 and will fill the space in my scrap­room per­fect­ly. Hang­ing on the green wall will real­ly make all the col­ors pop nice­ly. I real­ly like the sim­plic­i­ty of the three lit­tle birds sit­ting on the twig. The sides of the can­vas are the same col­or. Then you have sev­er­al dif­fer­ent shades of beige, red and turquoise. Love, love, love the pops of turqouise.

She attached a piece of Japan­ese paper (can’t remem­ber the name of it) that she wet and crum­pled up onto the can­vas before she start­ed paint­ing. The tex­ture it cre­ates is awe­some. I’m cer­tain­ly going to start incor­po­rat­ing this into some of my projects. I like the effect it gives.

Tomor­row, I will show you some of the cute vin­tage items she brought me. And dad and I went to Lowe’s and got a new tool for me to use on lots of dif­fer­ent projects. I’m super excit­ed about it. It’s going to be very help­ful using it on some of the met­al and wood ideas I have. But for now, I need to get to work big time on book projects. Today, I am going to try hard to get 2 com­plet­ed. We will see what the day brings. I’m think­ing a 5 hour ener­gy drink is in the near future. I need to get mov­ing.

Hugs & Stick­les!
