We are having glorious weather at the moment, and that means its garden time - lots of deadheading and pottering about. Last weekend we went to the theatre to see Oklahoma! (where the sun shines brightly in the sky!) - and it was fabulous!! We had a bit of a todo though - because we had the wrinkly with us, we decided to take a taxi from the station to the theatre (its only a short walk but uphill). We gets in the taxi, he starts driving, but doesnt know where the theatre is! He stopped some more taxi drivers - they didnt know, Then he stopped a group of taxi drivers - they didnt know! All the time he is driving around! In the end when he stopped the second group the theatre was right in front of us, so we ended up telling him where it was!! And to top it all - we gave him a blooming tip!!!!! duh!!!!!
So today I have a Vintage Flower Garden wall decoration to show you
|Paint the surface in white with a lilac stripe, then sand and distress it.|
Add the printed layer of a serviette slightly larger than the stencil
|Add the texture paste through the stencil - I used Viva Decor products throughout.|
|Paint a thin watered down layer of white paint over the serviette|
to knock back the brightness to give it a vintage feel
|Replace the stencil and go over it again with a colour|
|It looks like this|
|Add some paper lace around the edge - glue it with the serviette glue|
|I embellished further with die cut flowers tinted with the paper soft inks, and|
glitter glue pen dots in the centre and also added 2 old wardrobe door handles
|Finished wall decoration!|
