OK, now on to my post!
Hey, guys! I've missed blog world! In addition to not feeling very creative lately, I've not been reading any of my favorite blogs. I've finally started on a couple of projects that I'll be able to blog about soon, and I feel the creative juices flowing. Whew! So glad that's over! I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for your kind comments on my last post. It makes me feel so much better that you guys are so understanding and supportive!
I haven't painted anything new in almost two months, but I wanted to share with you a color I'd used not to long ago. It's a Folk Art color called Sheer Blossom. Now, I'm not usually a fan of pink, but I do realize that pink plays a big part in the Shabby Chic color pallet. Aside from white, it's probably the color most people think of when they hear the term Shabby Chic. When I started painting this cloche with it, I immediately had second thoughts. It just seemed too pink. Is that even possible??? Anyway, I reminded myself that even though pink isn't my thing, there are people out there who LOVE it, and so I kept at it. Once I distressed it, I was won over. I guess I don't mind pink if it's the rough-around-the-edges kind of pink... literally.
