Girl World Mini Project

My basement has been renamed Girl World. It is official, so says the sign. The smoke alarm makes a sweet touch to the Girl World vignette, don't you think?

On Memorial Day, I took my 25% off coupon to Michaels and found this wood girl cutout. The universal sign for female. I thought she was cute and with the coupon, how could I not bring her home?

Fixing her up did not take much in time or materials. I love a project like that. I started by painting her chartreuse green.
Then with a small flat brush, I gave her a groovy dress by making a turquoise checkerboard. This is a pretty simple process.  To paint a square, make a horizontal stroke on the chisel end of the brush. Then make a vertical stroke over it to square it up.  Load just a little paint on your brush. Too much will make it smoosh over the squared edges.  Just eyeball where the lines of squares will form.

With a liner brush and some hot pink, she got a swirly accent to her dress.

There she is in her new home. Any non-English speaking guests will now know that this is a place for girls. 

Imaginina is rolling her eyes.  

Who cares? Take your Vitamin C and find a mini project to do today.
