Artsy Craftsy

Some people are "artsy".  Some are "craftsy".  Some are both.  I am not both.  I can craft a lot of things, but I can't draw to save my life.  So, I had this vision of a tree art piece in my bedroom.  However, it involved some actual "art" along with my craftiness.  Here's how it turned out!

First, I painted a canvas with my lighter wall color.  Then, I just lightly brushed the canvas with my trim paint to give it a little more depth.

Next, I painted a tree branch on the canvas.  I'm not thrilled with the middle branch, but the rest came out okay.


I picked up some cut out flowers and pearls at AC Moore and glued them onto my branches.


And, voila!  Wall art!



Woohoo!
