Paint Everywhere

This is just a quick post.  I have been painting everything I can with the new Martha Stewart paints and stencils.  The round plate in the back used to look like this.

The colour was wrong for my new decor but I didn't want to throw it out.  So I painted it and added the stencilled lace.  

Next I tried the same paint on fabric.  I had a sample piece of blue linen in my stash.  I stencilled the birds then added beads to add an extra dimension.

So the paint worked on fabric and ceramic.  What next?

I had bought a wooden tissue box cover ages ago with a plan to do something with it.  It fir the shelf of one of my bathroom cabinets so I painted the wall colour and stencilled it with Martha Stewart's paints.

I am happy with all the projects and now I look at everything and say "I could paint that!"

Thanks for dropping by

Wow, those things are great, Janlynn. I really like that you added beads to the pillow--so "you" with the detail.
