wedding paintings

Hey guys!!

Great to see so many new followers!! For those that left their link I am also a follower of your blogs now too!!

When I get to 25 followers a random giveaway will happen! :) Feel free to invite your friends!

So today, I decided I wanted to paint a little bit. I love to paint, I am not an expert, and I am certainly not the best painter there is. My wedding is coming up in FIVE months (OH WOW!), and I would love to be able to relax from decorations the few weeks before the wedding, and the weather has been so nice, so I thought I would go ahead and paint a few things. :)

I whipped out my acrylics, and went to town on this little birdhouse gazebo that I bought a few of for center pieces... :)

We are using a lot of birds and butterflies, and purple hydrangeas. :) I like the way this turned out, and after I got to painting it went so quickly.

I used an antique white for the base, and a periwinkle color, and combined a cranberry and white to get my other shades of purple. Mixed a few colors to get the green, and voila! oh, and of course I added some ribbon. (It's the scrapbooker in me *tee-hee*)

I think I have 6 more of these big ones, and about 10 small bird houses. For show I put in a tealight, but we actually have battery powered votives for these that are really neat looking. I have no intentions of lighting a candle inside a piece of wood. ;)
