Today, I have a fun little idea that is simply the combo of a line, a square, a marker and an Ikea natural wood mirror. My inspiration came from Lab #37 in the book, Paint Lab: 52 Exercises inspired by Artists, Materials, Time, Place, and Method. It uses the simple square shape as its base. I got a brand new pack of BIC Metallic markers and nothing inspires a new project than a new set of supplies.
I simply took my quilt ruler and drew squares with the different colored markers. It was easy and added a nice touch to the plain natural wood mirror. And guess who I found that looks really cute next to my new decorated mirror? My little Retro Fawn I made using the little stuffed retro deer pattern.
So look around your world, see what could use a little personal touch, grab a set of markers or paint and draw concentric squares or try on another shape. I bet you will be happy with the outcome!
