Dear Auntie Moonbeam,
Do you ever wake up with an idea magically and fully complete in your mind? Something you weren’t aware your brain was working on until it pops up?
When that happens I like to picture a secret war room in the dusty back recesses of my brain where a bunch of Keebleresque elves work in fits of creative energy. Then when something is ready for production they fling open the door and throw out a picture!
Anyone else have that same thought? No? Fair enough, the weirdo stands alone…
Anyway, one morning I woke up with a graphic idea for my linen closet doors. Up until that moment I had no idea my linen closet doors were in need of graphic but apparently the elves thought different.
Here’s a pair of doors so boring they practically scream “nothing to see here people, move along, move along!”
Or maybe they’re so boring they just mumble it.
blatantly copied borrowed inspiration from something I saw in a movie once.
Bonus points to anyone who can name that movie. If you can you’re likely at least one of the following things:
One – a girl
Two – a lover of Christmas movies
Three – in possession of a stupidly good memory for useless yet weirdly specific movie trivia like me
The logical next step would have been to print a stencil or rent a projector to trace an outline. But who got anywhere by being logical? Except probably Einstein. That guy seems pretty methodical.
Instead I drew two horizontal guidelines (at least I know enough to use a level) and dove right in.
Many back and forth touch ups later (grey then white then grey then….well you get the picture). And voila! Instant (& cheap) interest to an otherwise drab set of doors!
I’m toying with the idea of a pink keyline…I wonder what the elves will think about that?
