I only took one picture of this and this is the finished product. I'm sure you have all had one of those days where it was distraction after distraction. I saw something in a magazine that I thought were these colors and I fell in love with it. I do this frequently. I love an all white color scheme and then I try to duplicate it and it gets all confused when I translate it into my world. That's what happened with this sign. The color is called sugar blossom and it's a Valspar paint, but I've had it for five years. Don't know if they make it anymore. It's like a shell pink. I paired it with a taupy grey and it just lacks pizzaz. Plus the writing doesn't show up very well at all. With all the problems I had with my Jules Belin sign last week, I still loved the finished product, but this needs something more. Maybe I'll try again with different. colors someday.
To top it off, my daughter came out to talk to me and noticed this beautiful butterfly floating in our pool. What was I to do? I fished it out with my stencil and as soon as he dried off sufficiently I put him in one of my plants.
One of his gorgeous wings was torn and then I noticed his wing was actually ripped. Oh no. Did I mess with Mother Nature? About five minutes later, he flapped his little wings and off he flew. So off I went back to my project. I lifted my painter's tape and a whole section of paint lifted because I left the tape on too long. Oh well, it was never meant to be. Some things are like that.
Just a reminder about the Hot Summer Fun link party hosted by Holly@Bella Nest, Bliss@Bliss Ranch, Lorraine@Miss Flibbertigibbet, Karen@Somewhat Quirky and myself. The party will run every Friday through the month of July, and it will start July 6. I think I told you before July 8. My gosh, I would be late for my own party. So anything summer related, and we would love for you to link up.
