PostSubject: Garden Art Wall   Sun Sep 06, 2009 4:59 pm

I have been trying to find an answer for covering the side of a shade house that is alongside our new table and chairs/outdoor area ????
Then I remembered these old plastic blinds that were under the house....hhhmm.. so here is the first attempt...it was to get a bit of an idea for possible ideas.

hhhhmmm me thinks it is a bit bland... so I used some blank canvas bits...excess spray paint, add a bit of Grandfather's Beard AND the table runner..(now newly assigned) ..presto...here is next result..it has a bit more tizz me thinks...
I love trying to create something..it gives me pleasure... I thought of the table runner at approx 2am this morning.. no wonder I am awake for hours on end..lol..

That's wonderful, Fay. You have such a flair for this, I think I'd make a real hash of it. Looks great. thumb2

Fay it really is taking shape, the bamboo runner looks very effectice against the matchbox blind.The colour panels look great . I''m sure it will change again before it gets so grown with plants you won;t be able to change it.So well done Fay. flower flower thumb2 thumb2

Thanks Gail and Gwen again...'I'm a poet and I don't know it'..lol.
Gail, you probably do have the flair...the secret is don't pay heed to critics, stand back and look from a distance, squint if need be (that softens the view), then play my game called 'pretend you don't live here'. This game means you walk in the front gate and wander around until you reach the area you are working on..look at that area as though you have never seen it before. This exercise may sound dumb...but you look at things with new eyes....a different perspective.. Ross is used to me saying I'm going to play 'pretend I don't live here'.

I have always had a lot of imagination, mainly because as a kid I had a lot of illness...bronchial asthma, no drugs in those days. So I would lay in bed and imagine all sorts of things. The old plastered wall near my bed had some sort of fibre throughout the plaster, which created shapes...sort of....I could see shapes, animals, faces...all sorts of things. Even to this day I see shapes in trees etc. that sounds so weird..lol...but who cares.

Think outside the square and have fun...that is the main thing. Children have a wonderful view of the world...nothing clashes as all colours mix beautifully and best of all no critics.

Fay thats a good thing to do , makes a lot of sense to me.

Gail I used to be out of bed as soon as I woke , just before dawn. and out on the road for a 45 min brisk walk .my stroke ended that . I agree its by far the very best time of day.

Fay, you have a talent for this. You should have been a professional garden designer or something similar. You definitely think "outside the square". I like it a lot.
