PSW Mantel

To welcome painters, what better way than a fun color wheel mantel!! 

I fell in LOVE with these tissue paper flowers and immediately knew what mantel I'd be doing for the 52 Mantel paper challenge!

Don't they look like yummy color wheel puffs??  My mantel always presents a challenge because it's soooooo deep.  But for this, the deep pocket totally worked in my favor.  The brush is made from a cardboard tube, glitter paper, and black construction paper.  Of course, tipped with a little red paint!  The paint something flash card is a favorite and the springboard for my workshop name.  The little glasses were a give-away for the workshop attendees.  Attendees were encouraged to use the glass to help them, "see clearly". 

Such a fun challenge Emily!!  Thanks for stopping by if you are blog hopping from her 52 Mantels.  And please be sure to check out my Paint Something Workshop tab for upcoming painting workshops!

This is so fun! I remember making those big tissue paper flowers/pom poms when I was a kid. Your use of color is awesome!
