Zentangled, Doodled-oodled Fan....

When we painted back in Feb, I pulled my fan apart and decided it could do with a coat of paint....I finally put the new version back up just up in time for summer...


I had seen this cool chair on Pinterest....[ hah!! Pinterest again ]!!!

what a cool idea to get have your  kids draw all over it..... mine would have loved that.....

and then these fan blades....

 SO......I had already purchased this cushion from Ikea just because I loved it...




and used it for inspiration but once I got started , I just couldn't stop with the ideas ....I used black sharpies over  a satin spray varnish...I would use different paint next time..........the sharpies kept running out and had to drawn over paper all the time to get going again...

What do you think ?????



its really hard to get a good photo....

 
so some close ups for you...
 



and while there a few mistakes you wouldn't know, I just doodled over them.... 
 
and only 3 more lounge room projects left to do :)

I have noticed the Zen/doodle influence in clothing too...black and white goes with everything!
