I also sat staring at a photo of the dining room last night, deliberating what all still should be done in there. I think replacing the chandelier I've never liked will be my reward for getting all the princesses painted. Meaning...it'll be a while, but at least it'll happen eventually ;) But I also thought the tops of the corner cabinets could use "something." I love the way dried sedum looks like miniature trees, and have used it in a craft in the past. I think it looks nice among the trees painted on the walls.
Oh yes, and then there's also this, the real reason for another blog post ;) Two more princesses.
My goal for most weeks is going to be to complete 3 princesses. I figure that way I can get the cut-outs done in four weeks. But Princess Julia and Princess Delphina are twins, connected visually as well as at-heart, and I had to create them together.
I mean, think about it...Twelve Dancing Princesses...for it to work out logistically, you have to at LEAST have a pair or two of twins...
I completed the ladies while the sun was still up today, hence the better quality images!
Yes, that is a Chimera photo-bomb. He's tucked warmly in the dining room corner until the weather gets warm enough again not to damage him.
Princess Delphina, thus named because Tom suggested she looked like a young Julie Delpy.
Princess Julia, named for the same reason.
Even in their bespelled and sleepwalking state, they reach for each other.
Finally, a shot of me with the four princesses so far.
I'm really enjoying this project, far more than my fears whispered to me I would. I hope this enjoyment lasts well into the painting stage as well.
