It's Creative Tuesday! Do a little dance, shake all around! It's that time of the week where I open my sketch pad -- or do I? -- and see what comes out for the theme over at Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday's assignment!
This week's theme was Purple. yes. As in the color. As in the creative we come up with should be mostly purple. I have to admit I was totally stumped. I mean I could think of purple things like grapes and flowers. I also thought of drawing something random like a hippo and coloring her purple.
But, in the end I took a totally different direction and even went away from my safe and comfortable color pencils. It was all spurred by this... a bird house!
Yup, Katie gave me a hand crafted, one of a kind, bird house for Mother's Day! Isn't she talented! I'm sure, the mister helped her a little. I was smitten!! Been wanting my very own bird house for sometime now!
So, I gathered up my paints. It's been a long time.. oh how I missed thee Paints!!
And I started to apply purples. Purples mixed with pink, purples that were mostly blue, purples mixed with orange.. serious. Check it out! This unit even comes with blooming tulip gardens!
I couldn't resist being my spunky self and adoring the front of the house with "Home, Tweet Home!" And the back with "No Twig, like home" (likened to No Place, like home) Fun, right?
Then a large wash with Mod Podge. Yummy!
And because that wasn't funky enough...out came the fake spanish moss to finish the job!
And there you have it. A one of a kind, purple infused, ready to move in, freshly painted Purple Love Shack!
