I started off with a white canvas and mixed some dark brown Jo Sonya's paint into the paint I used for the wall to ensure that the tonings were the same. I took a sponge and cut pieces out of it and started dabbing.
Once on the wall I wasn't sure if it was too bland or whether less is more. So I lived with it for a week and then decided that it needed some more guts to it, so got out the paints again and created a band of reversed colours and dabs I'm happy with it now.
You will see how the colours tie in when I show the finished room at a later date.
On Sunday for Mother's Day we had a lovely lunch down the local hotel with the boys and their partners. We're catching up with our parents this weekend as they live a distance away. I was spoilt and received these candle holders that match in so well with my other decor.
We've had our share inside and out. While watering my plants last week, something caught my eye and there was a mouse eating away at a large candle that I had sitting on the BBQ bench. He and probably others had eaten their way through this large candle!!!
