Yep, so this is the same pic from the Cushion Obsession blog, but I wanted to talk about the painting above our bed. I pondered for a long time about what to do with this space. Being a low bed, the stark white wall (Taubman’s Big White) gave me too many options. Infinite options paralysed me. I initially liked the idea of using the Zzzzzz’s above our heads, manga style, with Z’s in different font styles randomly scattered all over the wall. Then I read somewhere that it’s good Feng Shui to practice symmetry in the bedroom, so I decided on the three canvases.
I layed out the letters on Illustrator, then used them as stencils on the canvas. I used watercolour paint and a sponge to get the dreamy, cloudy effect.
Project cost: $22.50 (3 canvases x $5.50, paint & sponge $6)
