Hope you had a awesome weekend!
I have been busy painting more bottles…arranging another vignette.
I bought this Hawaii decal on one of my trips to visit my son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. And it has been hidden in my desk drawer until I knew what I wanted to do with it. The bottle is painted my favorite with acrylic black paint, white paint then distressed. The decal is applied and then sealed.
As a little girl my mother had me in art classes on Saturday mornings where I enjoyed painting and being creative. Since that time I still love being creative as I have worked as a professional sign painter and later as a house painter plus graphic artist…so I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in paint including painting furniture. I have drawn inspiration from lot’s of bottles, Mason Jars, tins, wood pieces and furniture on Pinterest, websites including Dream Factory, facebook and catalogs…and from Doc, my husband who has a PHD in Art Education.
With the bottle on it’s side this looks like it is pointing the way towards Hawaii! I am so ready for another Hawaiian trip.
This is one of my coastal vignettes…sitting atop my large jaccuzi tub in our master bath. I enjoy decorating with sand, shells and candles…just not too much of sand and shells. The large round glass container is filled with black sand, white sand, shells, rocks and a tall candle. There are two matching candles in frosted glass dishes. Another glass jar contains bath salts I mixed together…the black and white mason jar on the left contains plain bath salts. The soap dish is a large shell…it already had 4 holes in the bottom…so it easily drains out water from the soap getting wet. And lastly…a soft bristle brush. Great for scrubbing our backs.
The candles and large glass container I purchased at Pottery Barn a few years ago.
Thanks for stopping by.
I enjoy reading your comments.
