Yes, sometimes I wonder if it's worth it to paint this big. Everything that doesn't look quite right is magnified. But this is where I started this 36 x 36. Don't ask me why I started dark. It's really just experimental at this point thinking that it might give it a folk art look with the dark peeking through around the edges of the shapes. I started to paint some flowers next to the pot but I chickened out on that.
Below is where I put the pebble stencil with Wood Icing and really wished that I hadn't done that at this point. I also put the crackle paste on the pot. That is always the fun part but I have to wait overnight to see the cracks.
Below I started working on the pebbles. Oh those blasted pebbles! I couldn't get the right color and kept changing it. I thought it might look like it was sitting on pebbles on the ground but it just looked dingy to me. At this point I was getting frustrated and SO wishing I hadn't put those pebbles.
So then I just lost it and pulled off all of the paper later regretting that I had done that. Ok now I am in the midst of the extreme agony part. So I just painted everything blue. Then I thought maybe I will put the paper back on but much to my dismay---I had no more of it.
But I did have some of this paper that I liked. But when I took the picture and looked at it I thought something seemed wrong.
I still have some hair left. Good thing I have thick hair. So sometimes, with all the agony, I wonder if it's really worth it.
