Head ALL THE WAY back!  UGH!  Im Laughing out loud!   How will I ever DRIVE again...or go watch my kids activities???  Everyone will be like "Why is that girl looking up at the CEILING?"  LOL!  I will have EVERYONE around me LOOKING UP... they will be like "What is she looking at?"  They will all be STARING UP in search of what is in the SKY, or on the CEILING....OMGosh!   I am laughing SO HARD at that vision , my abs hurt!  Which tells me I am SOOOO TIRED that I am DELUSIONAL!  SIMPLED OUT to the MAX!!!
SO...THAT being said...Im not sure how much I can say below!   CRAP...and I keep making TYPOS {sp?}...MAYBE if I GLUE my computer to the CEILING I could type better!  OMG!

Wow. I love what you are going for! And you know one day when it is all done and folks are amazed by it, that crick in your neck will be totally worth it.

I did a faux marble ceiling in my bedroom. I totally get the feather on, rag off, move the ladder thing...

Sharon said...

Wow! I love the look that you are going for on this project. I always look forward to your posts I think that you are just so talented and BONUS entertaining. Let me just say that I have felt the pain in the neck and girl you are really going to suffer for your art! I mean get out the ice pack and the cervical neck collar pain. I know cause I have been there and done that to my neck. I sometimes wished that I could just remove my head from my neck to take the pain away. I so look forward to seeing your completed project. And to seeing what you come up with next. I half expect to see you hanging upside down from a trapeze with a feather brush and a rag. Love, love, love your energy!!!

NanaDiana said...

Come down, little girl, come down...AND get off the ladder too...seriously...I mean that TWO ways..and I know you GET that! Now you are putting black on it? Are you marbelizing it? Are you making a big smiley face on it? Are you drawing licorice sticks in a crossed pattern? Hurry up~~ It is looking pretty darned good and I can't wait to see what the finished product looks like. AND you have to tell us what your "friend" said about the kitchen dome! Hugs to you my Krazy Texas friend~ xxoo Diana

SheilaG said...

Looks great, can't wait to see the finished project, so please, no more rethinking, just do it! :)

Liz said...

Ok, my neck hurts just looking at those pictures. I can't believe how much work you have put into the pretty dome. I must say, it looks phenomenal, Kara! Your work always impresses me. I can't wait to see what happens when you add the Black Sparkle Glaze...Ooh La La!!

Take it easy up there....pleazzzeeeeee!!!
XOXO ~Liz

Gypsy Heart said...

Kara, STEP AWAY FROM THE LADDER! I kinda think you've lost it this go 'round girlfriend. :-)

It is absolutely gorgeous but I have no clue how you're doing this, day after day. One thing to think about & perhaps share with future prospective buyers...you've added insulation with all that paint.

Seriously, you are incredibly talented! Can't wait to see the finished product. I think you should call a chiropractor and masseuse and have them standing by when you do step down for the last time.

Kara, I live in Texas too. Rockwall (the smallest county in the Big TX.) After seeing your earlier post on how much you LOVE the snow (not), I just had to send you this. My sister-in-law sent me a picture of a TXDOT sign on I-35 between Austin and San Antonio. A little Texas humor, it said "Oh My God! It That Snow?!? We're All Gonna Die!!!!"

Stay warm and God Bless, my friend,

Theresa

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...
