My entry for Art Challenge...and"seeing Red"...

Sheew..I'm tired..the last couple of days I have been "seeing red..."


Red paint that is..as my daughter and I have been painting the trim work in our hallway and entry way.

Oh my..what a tedious job..as the trim is a decorative wood trim next to wallpaper..it has to be very carefully painted.

And since it was right up against the wallpaper that we wanted to keep..that meant we had to use a small paint brush on the edges.

6 hrs of working on it yesterday..then today another 6 hours of painting door casings and baseboards and so forth.

The end is almost in sight as we only have 2 doors left to do the trim around..and then we'll go back and touch up any areas where we might have made a few "boo boos"
Sheew..we were really tired tonight.

Anyhow..here is a peek at the new color combinations.
--------------
And ..here is my entry for the art challenge.

I used a photo I had taken of some pink chrysanthemums as the background. Then some lace pieces, and a piece of a card that had real flowers on it..then some real flower embellishments, and an old necklace.
And a few tiny bee images.
I like how it turned out.
If you like my entry..be sure and vote for me over at "Mind Wide Open" on the 8th of August.

Hope you all have a great week. I'll be busy the next couple of days getting ready for family to visit.Take care.I'll be back soon.
