My daughter Phoenix at the thrift store.
Initially I thought I might use some modeling paste for texture
but decided to let the drips themselves be the texture.
Because we purchased several samples at a time we received this handy
little sample kit, which I saved for this project.
First I rolled on some white paint and then some gray.
Cued up Twenty One Pilots's album Vessel,
grabbed a brush and began dripping and splattering.
Between each color I'd wait a little bit and clean my 2 inch brush and then get back to it.
My husband's contribution in fuscia...
We left it flat to dry for several days before hanging it in our dining room.
So looking back at what I set out to do last year and what I actually completed I'd have to say I'm happy with my accomplishments. I did purchase a few fabrics last year and that's okay, I used most of them in projects!
I do have one project goal that I'd absolutely love to start and finish this year and that is to make a dress for myself. As for quilt projects I would like to start and finish one that I pulled fabric for back in August but we'll just have to see how it goes as we're about to get pretty busy around here soon with a new adventure.
I almost forgot, well I did actually but am back editing this post, to mention that we had the pleasure of visiting our daughters in the monastery before Christmas. Our daughter Cheyenne was clothed in the Poor Clare Habit on December 16th. Upon receiving the habit she also received a new name and shall now be known as Sister Mary Faustina of Merciful Love.
Here she is holding her hair in a basket.
Here she is with her twin sister Posulant Phoenix.
The Sisters jokingly said now they'll be able to tell who is who.
Our family selfie in the small parlor where we're separated by a screen,
making it easier to take a picture without the grille.
A hidden life of prayer...
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, creative and love filled year!
