WARNING   WARNING    WARNING

PICTURE OVERLOAD   PICTURE OVERLOAD  PICTURE OVERLOAD

Here it is!!!
Since there are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  MANY PICS,  my writing will be VERY BRIEF or this post will take me till SUNDAY!!!  I think it turned out FAB!!!!   Thanks to God and all my PRAYIN!!!

So this is what it started out like....Lets play, Guess that Word...It was BOR*NG!!!!  Did you guess it???
HUH?   Oooohhh!  Im supposed to leave out MORE than 1 letter....SHOOT!   Anyhoo...here we go!



 This is after I applied the LIGHTER paint color to cover all the white mud....




YEPPERS!  The ABOVE photos are the ones I showed YESTERDAY and told yall I was DUNZO!  LOL!   I had a few people goin there...Uuuuh Huuuu!   BUSTED!  Now I know who actually READS all of the post ...LOL!!!   I got a big oole Texas sized kick outta that!


OK Liz!!!   NO NEED to hit your REFRESH BUTTON this time!
 THAT CRACKED me up!  Funny GUUUUURL!
Now to mix the DARKER, Original paint color with a CLEAR Glaze...
I did approx 5 parts GLAZE to 1 part paint...the more parts CLEAR GLAZE, the more "Opaque" the color



 Then you need to stir it THOROUGHLY!!!



Dab a little on the MUST HAVE Feather Brush...



I get JUST the tips of the brush in the paint glaze



Gently dab the brush onto the wall




Then with a clean rag {old T-Shirts work BEST} Blot the rag over the glaze, but NOT removing all the paint glaze...just blending








Now im going to LIGHTLY brush over the Scripture




Making them look dicolored and aged




LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE how the scripture is "peeking" through the texture








I KNOW!   It still looks AWFUL!  But HERE is where the "Magic Transformation"  begins



Im using a Raw Umber Glaze as the last paint application






 You can see h0w THIS Glaze starts to BLEND everything






 I am LOOOOOOVIN IT!



 You can see the difference...where I HAVE applied the glaze and where I havent




 Theres that "Peek a Boo" spot I LUUUUUUUUUUUURVE!






 This one in the corner looks WAAAAY cool!




LLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!   That is my Heart SINGING!!!



IN LOVE!!!!  IN LOVE!!!!  IN LOOOOOOOOOOOVE!!!!



 OK!  This one is a CRUMMY Pic because of the CRUMMY camera I have!  Uuuggg!   I HATE when the pics dont show what it REALLY looks like!



And my Baby Boy!   Hes SUCH a sweet boy!  He TAKES CARE of his Mommy!   Heart of GOLD!



Working on his School Science project!



NOW...Im gonna go in and LOAD UP the Glaze in the creavices of the Texture







This shows SO DARK...its not THAT DARK!   I need a Karas Camera Fund!!!



I am CRAAAAAAAAAAAAZY about how aged this is looking!!



I was careful to make sure the Scripture was still readable







 One of my FAVORITE Scriptures!  "We live by Faith NOT by Sight"....




 I LOVE how the Walls somewhat Replicate the Mirror...






 GORGEOUS!!!



Aaaaahhhhhhh!!!!



OMGosh!   I am SMILING!!!!!!!!!!!



AAAAAND SMILING!!!!



 Bestill my HEART!




THANK YOU GOD!!!







COLOR ME HAPPY!!!!








The Crosses ADD SO MUCH to the space!  And BONUS!  They keep the "Boogie Man"  AWAY!   You know him....the one that wears the black hooded cloak {sp?}  Hes SCARY!    NO LIKEY!!!










Before.....................




And AFTER!!!   DUNZO!  DONE...FINISHED!

Now...Im gonna go REST!
Im Pooped!

Hope all you Decoratin Divas have a SUPER BLESSED day!
