I have been meaning to post since we got back, but to be honest I'm struggling to pick up the threads of normality at the moment - so you'll have to forgive me for not having posted sooner. I'll tell you all about last week on Friday as have a feeling I might need 'two weeks worth' of Rocking moments to make a decent post - this week looks likely to be wall to wall work - but we won't dwell on that. A few weeks ago we finally got around to creating the family canvas that we wanted for the TV room. First off we needed a theme. First thoughts were films (made sense) then potentially TV (also made sense), but then we decided on a Shakespeare themed canvas and before we knew it this converted into a Macbeth themed canvas, firstly because this is mine and hubby's favourite Shakespearean play and secondly because we'd seen an awesome version of this at the RSC last year.
The colour scheme for the canvas was already technically set because it had to go with the room - so we were looking at creams and browns and reds - sounds pretty awful but hopefully you'll see how we got away with it! I'd already 'attempted' this canvas (unsuccessfully) last year, but had subsequently painted the same cream, what you can see is the texture as I'd added some pieces of paper onto the canvas at that point.
