I don't know why I have such a hangup about painting. I took a class back in November, purchased the chalk paint, brush, wax, etc. and it had sat on a table in the basement for a couple months. Well, I finally forced myself to paint some things and I could not believe how relaxing it was for me. I actually enjoyed it. The painting 101 class I took with Vintage Whimsy helped give me the confidence to do it. I painted this wooden frame I wrote about in this post with Maison Blanche Vanille and used their light brown wax to protect it.
|Many thanks to The Graphics Fairy for the bird image. I cut it out with the Silhouette Cameo.|
This was my inspiration, a photo I took at an event I attended and wrote about here.
It happens to be the picture on my Pinterest Procrastinations button for this series. I knew that if I used this picture, I would have to complete the project and it worked!
I painted several other things at the same time and will share them later.
