20 in 20 giveaway (day 20)...

handmade
20 handmade projects in 20 days...day 20. I can't claim ownership on the idea for this project; it was inspired by a hand-painted wall in the home of Eline Pellinkhof that I saw on bloesem. Eline's is way better and way bigger and definitely not made of puff paint. (yup, here I go again with the puff paint...here's some info for those who may not know what the heck puff paint is). I would never describe my personal style as 'flowery', so making this big old flower took even me by surprise. It's painted on a piece of birch, btw. Thanks to pinkshirts and carwrecks for sponsoring today's project. Happy 20 in 20!

Thank you all for your sweet comments!

Mrsink- thanks for posting! :)

Chad- when puff paint freezes it won't come out of the container and then, sometimes, when it does come out it's lumpy and gross. :(
