How long have you been practicing home-deco?

I have been practicing home deco since May 2008. I discovered while looking for a painting for my interior, my walls were all white because I had just moved and I couldn't find paintings in aniseed green and pink tones in the shops. So I searched the Internet and discovered people who were doing home decor. I thought, why not try it and I went for it. Since then, it has become a real passion!

The forum http://homedeco.forumactif.info/ (it is closed since then) has also helped me well (advice and tips).

What do you prefer to do in home deco? 

I love paintings on the theme of nature with flowers, leaves, butterflies... besides, I have many on this theme on my site!

What are your favourite colours? 

I love aniseed green but it is the most difficult color for me to create.

I make many blends before I am satisfied with my green.

Otherwise, I also like the turquoise and brown association very much.

What does home deco bring you?

It is a real moment of relaxation after work. It allows me to think of something else and let my imagination work because I love to create.

I often do "creative" evenings, I do a lot of drawings on paper until I find the sketch of my future painting.

First, paint the background of the canvas in aniseed green.

Once the paint dries, stick tape to delimit the colour bands and paint pink and green bands. For a lighter pink, add white paint.

 

Step 2 - Draw the flowers

When the paint is dry, draw the leaves and flowers with a wooden pencil or trace them or use a stencil to outline them.

Step 3 - Paint the sheets

Paint the sheets in white color using a very fine brush special contour
