American Baseball

Happy Sunday everyone.  Here is another Pinteresting inspired post.  I picked up these three baseballs last weekend at a sale.  Right afterwards I saw this idea on Pinterest and got right to work.  I used navy blue, cardinal red and ivory white acrylic paint and then I went over them with an antiquing gel that I had with my craft paints.  I think these look very Pottery Barn and a whole bowl or cloche of them would be fabulous and not just for the 4th of July.  Great for a primitive or Americana decor style.
I can't believe I didn't have a small star stencil.  I had to wing it with my freehand style, but it kind of goes with the primitive feel.  Don't you agree?  If I do more of these, I will invest in the stencil, but it's okay for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Golly gee dangit girl. Cute again. And finally saying you hit this one out of the ball park is accurate.

I love the Americana painted baseballs. I saw these for sale at a craft show a couple of years ago and they are on my list of must makes. I also plan on painting a bat and glove. Have to find a way o display them on my front porch.
