I was very restless and not feeling too sociable this weekend, so I decided to spend a little time tackling my Birch Tree Project. A few weeks ago, I had drawn the outline of the trees on the wall and did a sample board. Originally, I was going to use a plaster to give the trees a little dimension. After thinking about how often I like to change my walls in my house, I decided to go with paint instead of plaster and just have the illusion of dimension, no actual texture on my walls. I have 2 windows on this wall, so I did this series of 4 trees at the left end of the wall….
I love my trees! When I came into the room the next morning, the sun was shining on them and it looked so nice as I walked into the room. Birch trees have always been my favorite trees. 🙂
Since I was only doing a few trees for myself, this was a quick project, maybe 2 hrs total. But… should I do an entire wall of trees, or decide to use some texture or a different technique… I will be looking to those clever gals over at the Stencil Library. Keep a watch on their blog for a new tree design they will be introducing shortly!
