Yippee…Halloween is around the corner and I decided to get creative and make things a little more haunted than normal…
My favorite thing to do is to visit a good thrift store and that is exactly what I did. I walked in with the intention on finding a candlestick that could be turned spooky for Halloween. It just so happened that I found two candle holders that could be placed together to form a candelabra.
A quick coat of black spray paint and my spooky candelabra was on its way.
The best part about thrifting, is that sometimes I find amazing things without even looking for them. This mirror, was an extra that the lady just through in for free because she was so excited to hear what I was going to be using it for!
In September, I started something a bit out of my comfort zone. Don’t get me wrong, I have definitely painted with watercolor before but I had never actually taken a watercolor class. It is a little scary working with a type of paint you are not all that familiar with.
I have been painting all my life, but really my GO-TO paint was always acrylic. I have come to the realization that making certain types of color in my paint palette is a bit trickier than I thought…and what…”NO WHITE”. Can’t I just add a little Acrylic white in there!
Here is my first completed painting. My professor was quite impressed and with a sigh of relief, I think I can continue.
If painting seems scary to you at first…sometimes it is important to just try it out. I can’t tell you how many paint parties I have taught that scared people. In the end everyone was beyond satisfied and even wanted to try it again!
