I'm Working On...

Just letting you know what's going on over here.  
First of all The Summer Of Color is now happening over at Twinkle Twinkle (click on the name to find out details).  The color for the first project is blue!  You know I love my blues!  So Kristin (the lovely host of the event) asked us to post what materials we will be using for our first project.  I think I'll make a collaged card with paint, paper etc to go to whoever wins my giveaway (still a couple of days left to enter...if interested go here.)  And there's plenty of time to join us for The Summer Of Color fun!  It's just getting started.


Before

I also wanted to share what I'm currently working on.  
I was hired by my favorite Interior Decorator who I used to work with years ago, to paint a couple of cabinets.  So here (above) is the before photo of the first one I'm working on.  It looks way better in the photo... the finish on it was awful!

 In progress...


And this photo shows the green that it is now, and the stencils I cut to embellish it.  I'm doing a raised pattern on it with wood icing, then it'll get painted more and antiqued.  It's going into a study, so I'm making it match, yet stand out from the other pieces in there.  I have to finish this one by the end of the week so I'll get back to you when it's done with the photos of the finished product!  

See you then!
