Zen Garden Mural

Kari over at U-Create gave a Vinyl Wall Mural Challenge. Well...here's the thing...I dont have a GREAT access to vinyl. (GASP! I know, I'm a vinyless crafter!) So I had to participate with alternate means...
I took a flat board, and some old wooden blinds (I have a few boxes of them, thanks to my cousin)
I cut them To fit, and instead of throwing away the ones that didn't fit...I cut a smaller peice from the next one...

And kept cutting...
And placing...
And cutting...Then I hot glued them on (so easy!) I sprayed them robbin's egg blue...
I got out my acrylic craft paint...and here's the step by step painting...
...
Add a lively curvey twig (because we're bob ross right now)...
and another...
Add the twigs... Add four pedal flowers...
Like so...
Add some sweepy leaves...
Add white blobs in the flowers...
Add black dots on the flowers...
Like so...
That's all...that's it. So easy. I'm pretty sure this is going to go in my Zen Garden. Ya, because I'm cool like dat.
Alright, so I dont have a Zen Garden, but maybe some day. Surrounded by bamboo, stones, candles and wise quotes.
ENJOY your last week before HALLOWEEN! My Hubby and I went to a corn maze last week. (A cute date right?) WELL...we spiced it up...slightly. We entered the 2.5mile corn maze with walkie talkies and our running shoes and we RACED!
(I TOTALLY kicked his royal tan booty!...in case you were wondering.)
Hopefully you haven't lost your respect for me since I'm not much of a humble peice of pie right now...but come ON! There's nothing wrong with hoping for your life that you'll win...right? (And I did...heehee)
