Subtle decoration….

I do find it difficult to leave anything alone and my husband has been heard to say a few times over the years “Please don’t paint or stick anything on that…..”. well really, I mean I don’t have to decorate anything, but some things are just crying out for a little addition…
So whilst helping my mother-in-law to sort out her things I came across these little pot vases, I tried to sell them as they were but to no avail so before sending them off to a charity shop I decided to paint a little something on them…

I dithered for a while and then started ‘dotting’ little dots of paint on and those dots turned into flowers. This style of painting is an extremely simple mimic of the Aboriginal Style.
I used acrylic paint and when dry I gave the vases a coat of clear varnish.
The act of varnishing has disturbed the dots but I still quite like these ‘subtly’ decorated little vases…

and now for the blue one…

So, they are done, I might see if anyone buys them but if not then I think they will look nice with a few little flowers in them. P1040993
Thanks for looking,
back soon.
