Oooh LOOK! hee hee To the left is my halloween banner! LOL
OK so my darling husband (at most times! lol) painted the kitchen with a custom color I had made from a piece of paper- SU! Soft Sky ink rubbed into white cardstock!! LOL Seriously I DID!!! I have been a Tuscan (not Tuscon! lol) red and mellow yellow girl for YEARS!
ALL of a sudden BLUE is showing up all over my house! WELL!! Wouldnt you know it that the new blue I have, coordinates fantabulously with that red and mellow yellow! See the painted rooster next to the pumpkin floral thing(more about THAT later!). THAT was my inspiration! Blue, yellow, and red! Kinda Swedish, kinda not!
Click on a pic to see floral and color DETAILS!
One wall I will be using a pearl paint to make a large Harlequin pattern on the wall, just to make it 'special'! Break up the expanse of blue, make it different!
Oh, about that Pumpkin floral thing... I MADE that!! I dont 'do' floral design, I suck at it!
But I have to say, this came out pretty darn COOL! Saw one in Michaels for about $70. All the picks were .99 cents, I bought 6, and 2 large picks for 3.99.
Pumpkin was 8.99. I carved off the top of it ,(using it to make a halloween hat for a cement bust I have..more on that later too! Not 'MY' bust...lol)
So I tell ya, all those oranges and reds and yellows in the Pumpkin floral thing POPS off my new blue walls!!! Its FALL and Halloween in my house now! And about 90 degrees outside too!Oh, and this card ( 2nd card) of Jan Tinklenbergs reminded me of my kitchen with the fall colors!!! Love ya Jan! http://stampspaperscissors.typepad.com/stamps_paper_scissors/2008/09/whos-lovin-me-n.html
