At moments of great enthusiasm it seems to me that no one in the world has ever made something this beautiful and important. ~ M.C. Escher
I got the idea for this from a painted parasol tutorial on Alisa Burke's blog. I changed it up a bit by painting the entire parasol like a canvas, spattering, and doing multiple layers of decoration on top. If you haven't stopped by Alisa's page before, do so now! She is an amazing artist and I learned so much from her last spring when I took her Grafitti Chic online art class.
A painted paper parasol probably isn't the most utilitarian item.. but the beauty it brings to a room is a breath of freshness. What are your enthusiastic about today?
