It’s actually relatively warm around here (we reached 60F today!), snow is all melted and the ice is off the lake.
Oh yes, spring is here.
I wanted to make something cheerful for my wall and since my hubby bought my some canvases I could do so pretty easily.
I wanted something based of this quote…
“When you look at a field of dandelions you can either see a hundred weeds or a hundred wishes.”
I have no idea who said this, but it really resonated with me.
Lets get down to the crafting.
First I painted a canvas.
Once that was dry I wrote the quote on in pencil
I can quickly see the whole quote wasn’t going to fit where I wanted it to. The solution? Shorten it a bit!
Once I got then words situated, I traced them in black sharpie and drew on the dandelion. My handwriting is still a little shaky since I just learned to write with my left hand. It adds to the homemade-ness…yah, let’s go with that!
I had issues with my dandelion. The stem was too green and the flower part not big enough.
I fixed it by adding more seeds and painted a bit of yellow over the stem.
