Picture Facelift

This picture has been in my closet for-ev-er and I decided I was either going to trash it or doctor it a bit.  I found a few bottles of acryllic paint at Walmart and thought I'd have a go at painting over all of the DARK areas.  I have no idea what I was thinking when I bought this deeply saddening print.  It looks like it belongs in an pamphlet titled, "Are you Depressed?"  Blegh!

I couldn't find my good brushes but I did find a kiddie water color paintbrush that worked just fine. 

So, it was pretty simple - I sprayed the frame with white Rustoleum spray paint and then went to town with my white and blue acryllic paint just adding more petals.  A little here, a little there.  Then, I ended up with a huge white blob - not worried about it too much.  Ultimately it looks WAY better than before.  It may end up in my bathroom - or a pamphlet.  :)

It's kind of fun to attack my prints with paint.

This picture ended up finding a perfect spot in my bathroom.  It's part of an ongoing, Bathroom Brightening plan I have for that space.
