I was, as is my usual time killer, perusing Pinterest when I came across this really awesome wall mural.

I feel in love instantly with the idea. However, I wasn’t quite ready to up and paint a mural on my wall. I wanted to try this out though, so I thought about it for a few minutes and I grabbed a few things and got to painting.
I had a lot of fun with these! I found a cross stitch design online that was simple enough and traced it onto a piece of watercolor paper. I “borrowed” some paint from my sister and went at it. I did the pink and red one first, and while it’s nice you can see the pencil marks through the paint.
I free styled the brown and blue version and I like it much better. Not only can you not see pencil marks, because there are none, but my paint strokes were better. I’m not a very good painter, but I’m pretty proud of these!
Eventually I’ll paint that mural. Perhaps on a canvas, so I can move it around.
