I wasn't sure where to put this, as it isn't reproduced or printed, it's painted by hand. At the moment i'm wanting to add medieval or extremely old royal colours and articles into my room, and as i'm not too good at portraits or still life, i decided to make up this print based on a fabric print you'd see on a couch or cushions. It's not perfect for my first go at printing, as you can see, i used a small brush so by the time i got to the ends of the scrolls there was no paint left on the brush, so you can see where i stop/start and add on. The funny circular patterns were just random, and now to me they remind me of paper daisies. I used a beautiful burgundy shade for the background, then cream, and gold over the top. What do you think?

Wow, thanks  Grin i wasn't expecting such a positive reply. I suppose when it's up there on the wall and you can see all the details it looks a little more messy lol
