Cocoa, paint and a snow flake or two

  • Gesso( if your painting on wood or slick surfaces)
  • scissors
  • a folder
  • pains, at least two colors
  • paint brush

So I needed a little something on the walls of a bedroom. I was feeling a little funky and had snow flakes on the brain. So... a stencil made by way of old school snow flake cutting. And I cut my freestyle vase of flowers out of a folder. This was so it would be sturdy enough to use as a stencil. What do you think?

And below is a preview of a table I'm painting for our living room. Moe to come on this project.

I love your stencil idea! It is so much like paper-cutting! And I can't wait to see your table. That's really cool that Kari and Kijsa want to post about it!!!

Happy Day Off to Do Projects! I'm mesmerized by the table. I can't wait to see it here first and then on Kira and Kijsa's blog.

Kari & Kijsa,
That would be fine. When I'm done I'll email you picks to use if you'ld like or you can pull the picks from my blog when i'm done.
Bethany and Willow, Hasn't it been a great project weekend. I did see the paper cutting story and got tickled. You know Great minds think ... in paper and scissors... and diet coke!

I just stumbled in to see that you have lots going on.
Our 'big' snow fall was enough to get some knitting done here too!
I'll be back (if I can find my way)
