I like to paint to loosen up. Beleive me I’m no Michael Angelo or Picasso, however that does not remember the handiest of paintings may be so relaxing. As I changed into inside the festive temper I painted these kinds of simple baubles in watercolor paints. It’s best when I finished the paintings that I were given the concept to border them right into a flat Christmas tree. I’d already made a Boho flat timber slice tree for my front room (see it here) and I idea this would appearance correct in the dining room.
I offered the frames for this craft from the pound/dollar save I got 2 for a £1 and acquired 14 in general. I most effective needed thirteen but as they got here in pairs so I needed to have 14.
Using a easy set of watercolor paints and some postcard sized watercolors I painted 12 baubles one according to postcard. 6 portrait and 6 landscape.
If you aren’t assured with designing your personal baubles you may download my template designs from the blog and truely shade them in with paint. (link on the give up)
For one of the lanscaped postcards I painted a celebrity for the pinnacle of the tree in place of a bauble.
Next, I eliminated the glass and backing from all of the photograph frames.
GAMBAR4 I painted 12 of them inexperienced the use of a tester pot of chalk paint. I used chalk paint as I should paint immediately on to the wooden with out sanding.
I also painted one very large picture body I had with a white history and a green body. This is optional in case you mount your frames immediately onto a wall as an alternative.
Next, I aranged the image frames in a Christmas tree shape onto the body.
Once I changed into glad with the layout, I secured the design with mounting squares.
As I established the snap shots in a bigger frame this makes it less difficult to move from room to room or truely lean towards a wall. I’ve achieved this earlier than with a terrific series of f ree vintage fowl prints which you can see here.
