861  Bedroom Ceiling Painting in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: January 24, 2005 07:43:36 AM
Thought I would share my most recent project... the bedroom ceiling!

The paint is black and metallic gold acrylic. We have a ceiling fan there as well, but it's usually on, so it doesn't get in the way much Smiley  
It's not quite completed yet, as you can see.  But it's so close!!  My back has been somewhat sore this last week, so it's been delayed a little bit...but will be done, soon enough.  When completed...the entire knot will look like the section on the left of the picture...outlined, clean & crisp Cheesy  Sorry if the photo isn't the best...I had to lay on the floor with my head half into the closet to get the whole ceiling, LOL.

It's not my original design, so I would like to give credit to where I got it from...this website...http://www.aon-celtic.com/ She says..."This little knot was derived partially from a pattern in the Book of Kells. Only half of it appears on the bottom of folio 32v, but I doubled it up to make a complete circle from it."

I am considering bringing the wall color up into the ceiling a little bit as well.  I don't really like how wall & ceiling colors create such a distinct line in every room.  I would like to create a wave of knots on the ceiling along the perimeter...with the dark grey wall color.  Just enough to pull the walls upward... It's hard to explain..but I can see it in my head Wink and hopefully will post it, if it ever comes to life.

862  Painted Mirror in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by sweets4ever on: January 24, 2005 07:29:22 AM
I painted this mirror for my little sister in law's birthday this year...she just turned 16 and had seen the design online a year or two ago and fell in love with it.  So to be crafty...I decided to put in on a mirror hanging for her...instead of a drawing or mural concept.  I bought the mirror at Target for just a few dollars & the paint was just some acrylic I have.  I totally cannot take credit for the design itself though, I used a design from an artist online... please check her out if you get a chance. http://www.aon-celtic.com/ I don't personally know her or anything, but I wanted to give credit where it's due.  Anywho...here's the mirror... I never realized how hard it was to take a photograph of a mirror & give it any justice!

Here are mine... Cheesy

On my back... this one is about 6 years old now, I had all of the black recolored 2 years ago, and added jade green to her eyes...and deep reds & yellows throughout the wings.

Modified from my drawing...

And on my neck...
