Ok I think I got it!

Last Night I was working on a "New"
color for my Bottle Brush Trees
I think I have it figured out...


The pictures on last nights post were
pretty poor, taken on the kitchen
butcher block low light you know the drill
and the trees were still pretty wet..


So I decided before I took off to my meeting
I was going to snap a few daylight pictures to
give you a better idea of the color blue..


I have only added Mica flakes to one of the aqua
trees so far and I really like the effect
Well I better get dressed and off to work I go~
Have a Great Day
(Oh and about the dye on my fingers
I'm going to say I was working at my grand-peeps pre-school)

LOL,

Sweet aqua blue trees! "Peeps preschool" sounds like a good excuse when you don't want to go into the whole story. :-)

Scrumptiousness! A few years ago, I would have never believed I would like pastel trees. Once I met other bloggers, all that changed! Thanks for opening my eyes to different art forms. : )

I recently went to a workshop where we dyed bottle brush trees. I think I might be addicted. That blue is a great color for cottage style
