I'm an artsy girl who LOVES color and creating & sharing! This is my blog with some "fun finds" that might inspire you to spice up your life, your wardrobe, and your home and my artistic projects that I take on from time to time! There is a science behind color and how it affects our emotions and our overall sense of well being. Hopefully you become inspired by these collections & add a little color to your life! XOXO - Kristi

Black and Cream
I love the simplicity of a bird on a branch and the contrast of black and cream! You have to see what I found first...These are drawer fronts from an abandoned house that my sister and her husband purchased in an auction. They are plastic and were adhered to drawer fronts of a dresser. Old, dirty, yellowed...UGLY, etc...BUT, I liked the look of them and knew I could make them pretty! ;)
So, I cleaned and painted them a flat cream color (to match a frame that I already had made).
Then I sketched my birds on a branch.
Then I painted in my design.
Next step was to sand off some edges. It can't be too perfect, right?
Then, spray polyurethane to protect & hang them on my wall!
