Artsy Craftsy

Some people are "artsy".  Some are "craftsy".  Some are both.  I am not both.  I can craft a lot of things, but I can't draw to save my life.  So, I had this vision of a tree art piece in my bedroom.  However, it involved some actual "art" along with my craftiness.  Here's how it turned out!

First, I painted a canvas with my lighter wall color.  Then, I just lightly brushed the canvas with my trim paint to give it a little more depth.

Next, I painted a tree branch on the canvas.  I'm not thrilled with the middle branch, but the rest came out okay.

I picked up some cut out flowers and pearls at AC Moore and glued them onto my branches.

And, voila!  Wall art!



  1. So gorgeous! You amaze and impress me in many ways Jess!!

  2. It's great!! I'm so not artsy or craftsy...
