Are you ever wanting more interest to an otherwise boring wall? Faux Ship Lap is the new rage… (especially if you are someone like me who is obsessed with the show Fixer Upper!)
Ship Lap is beautiful, but a lot of work…
( if you don’t know what ship lap is…here you go!)
Shiplap is a type of wooden board used commonly in the construction of barns, sheds, outbuildings and inexpensive or seasonal homes. It is either rough-sawn 1″ or milled 3/4″ pine or similarly inexpensive wood between 3″ and 10″ wide with a 3/8″ – 1/2″ rabbet on opposite sides of each end.
SO…instead of using the real thing, I decided to go for something that looks like it.
This painting is an original Matisse painting and was requested to be painted by a repeat customer for her birthday. This woman who’s birthday it was definitely has a passion for art, and it is was fun to try something new and a little bit challenging! The group of ladies had so much patience and did an amazing job painting!
This party was fun and easy for me…I got to teach a painting I had already done for a surprise birthday party! The group of ladies I taught had so much fun experimenting with different colors and really making them their own!
The Pretty Elephant party was done with a group of ladies that I had painted with before. They are such a fun group and all do an amazing job! The Pretty Elephant was probably one of the most fun painting’s I have done so far…it came with some adventures, but really I love how it turned out!
