Under the Sea

The lowercase and I were home this week, alone and sick.  I saw a lot of this room and realized that I never followed through and showed the pictures of the lowercase's bathroom after I finished painting.

Initially, I was going to stencil seaweed on the wall but found that the stencils didn't work as well as I had hoped.  It was, obviously, a large stencil that just didn't work well.  I transferred it to poster board, used a razor to cut out the stencil and then just loosely held it against the wall and traced it with a pencil.  However, I didn't like the look the stencil gave on it's own, so when I got out the artist brushes, I sort of painted them freehand -- the stencils became nothing more than a very rough guideline for size and placement.

The curtain was just a remnant I bought at the fabric store and ironed a seam in with fusable tape.  All in all, I think it turned out to be rather fabulous.  At any rate, I am impressed with myself.

And one last thing -- I still haven't been able to frame the painting I did in college for over the towel bar.  Anyone have any clue where I can find a cheap 12x18 frame, preferably in the same color range as the frames on the Rainbow Fish prints I bought at Target?
