Not every project can be a success.

This is why I’ve decided not to do any more towel painting. Even with the help of an iron on transfer, my artistic skills aren’t sufficient to pull off something like this. I also hate having to fight with the damn tubes of paint every time.

Oh, and the blue star is to cover up a big spot of flesh-coloured paint.  I added more blue dots to make it look “better”.

Overall, it is cute but kitschy. Meh.

    It’s good to experiment – they say you learn most from your mistakes – looks fine to me though. x

    I know how it feels to have an idea in your mind that you just can’t translate into a project. Your Santa looks fine to me, and I think the blue star and dots were a great way to hide a flaw. If you want your skills to improve, you have to practice. Everything you make will not come out perfectly. But if you have lost interest in a technique or it is too frustrating, you are right to take a break from it or stop it entirely. Don’t waste your limited time on something you don’t enjoy. You have probably learned something just by trying it.

    I like it, I never would have guessing the blue dots weren’t supposed to be there 🙂
    Happy Weekend!

    Kitschy is good! It actually looks like a towel my Grandmother had. Painting has never been my forte, so I admire you for giving it a try.
