A few weeks ago, I posted a tutorial for Pink Saturday on bow-tie hair clips. To my delight, it was featured on Recycled Crafts blog! My last post is all about that awesome discovery. You should check it out. I think I'll make a bunch more!
This week is about Paint by Numbers. Not just for kids anymore, folks! My grandpa, who passed away last year at the age of 74, diligently painted dozens of them over the years. Really intricate, detailed ones. And his last one, the one he never finished, went to me. I was honored. It's very large and not done yet, so I'm going to show you another one that I did, featuring the many shades of my favorite color: PINK!
It's 10"x14", so it will have to be cut down to fit in a frame, which seems like it would detract from the beauty of it. Right now it's just leaning against a collection of milk glass on my hall table. It does bring me joy when I see it as I walk in the front door.
It was supposed to be different colors, I think, but I chose to paint it as you see it. It's not perfect, but I think it's beautiful.
I'm now working on another of the same size, also purchased at Wal-Mart. Here's a sneak peak:
