OK, GUESS I NEEDED A DAY OFF
When I got home last Wednesday, I did 2 posts. One for WDW and one for My Fair Lady. The link on WDW didn't work and I completely forgot to post the My Fair Lady one. That's why today is a 2 day post. The link is www.messynessychic.com and she has a wonderful article about a Paris doll museum that is closing.
I do make other things besides costumes. Here is my inspiration.
Back in April we went to the Dali museum and enjoyed the Frida show. I decided I needed a flower wall.
Flowers from the Dollar Tree.
An old practice frame from scene painting class.
Heavy weight muslin saved from a trashed costume.
Centering the frame on the muslin.
Muslin stapled and stretched onto the frame.
Painted with a watered down craft paint. I did this part at work because of the space. We really should recover the cutting table. Look at all those taped up holes.
Basket full of flower heads. Most of the flowers came from the Dollar Tree, but Michael's craft store was having a 60% off spring flower sale. I picked a color palette and stuck to it.
Using fabric glue, I started tossing flower heads on the muslin. My goal was to not have the same flower heads touching each other.
Done. It took a couple of days and I did take about a month to gather all the flowers.
Hanging in the living room. I was going to hang it somewhere else, but it was awkward to reach and didn't want to hang on the hook. I like it much better here.
I love your flower wall! Genius! xReplyDelete
Well worth the effort, Thorne! Your choice of color scheme glows against the lavender wall and so links neatly with the lime and blue floral on the chair. I'd love to have either in my home -- and that's the best compliment I can offer on any bit of home décor.ReplyDelete
