I love these prints!!

Love at first sight!
I spotted these great prints in a recent Ballard Design catalog and I would so love to purchases them....
but in my world, that is out of the question right now. I knew I had a couple of inexpensive canvases just waiting for a project down in my craft room, so I though I'd try and paint my own.

Don't you just love the color palette?
I picked colors that I knew had sample jars available and started to paint the backgrounds.

The paint I used was water base wall paint and dried very quickly, so it was a little difficult to work with.  
I haven't painted for so long but it made me realize how much I missed it. 

Here are my results....not sure if I'll put them up, but it was fun! I think I'll try again, maybe just repaint over these. I'll post them if I try it a second time...then again, I may just have to break down and buy the real thing. 

Have a great day!!
