It has been a while since I have done a Home sweet home post but today I realised I had not shared my Flipper in the bathroom with you. Flipper is quite special to me. I have always been creative and have been busy with many crafts and mastered quite a few (but still not crochet! What is SO HARD about that?) but I had never ever painted and very rarely worked in colour. However one day after I had painted my loo I wanted to do someting special to it. I had come to the wall colour accidentally as I had mixed a bit of midnight blue paint with white to get light blue.... OK that turned out to be a very deep turquoise. Not a problem as I love that colour but for such a little room there was rather a lot of it. I left it to dry and wet to iron some duvet covers and one of them had this beautiful dolphin on it. Yes, I had a lightbulb moment then! I sketched the outline on the wall and started with some paints to make it real. It was a wonderful project and I realised that painting wasn't so different from drawing. So Flipper was my first painting and it has led to many more enjoyable hours painting although not quite on this scale.
