Shoji Screen . . . next steps

Bought the primer and paint today for the frame and will tackle the painting tomorrow morning. In the meantime, with the day off from work and daughter at school I took advantage of leisurely strolls through the aisles of Hobby Lobby and Michael's. So much fun to see all the Halloween decorations! Have been debating the look I want for the screen and have been thwarted by the fact that I'm usually quite the coward when it comes to injecting color into my home. Well, I'm taking a stance on this little project and am going all out with color.

So as I scoured the scrapbook paper aisles, I honed in on, simply, what I liked. Didn't matter what papers went with other papers or even what colors are in my bedroom. This screen is going to make me happy. You can see I even bought some origami paper and in the lower right corner you can see a filagree stencil paper (in black!). Yes, I will take that giant leap and throw in some black. Watch out, girls, I'm on a roll.

Is this going to be "Dawn Gone Wild With Color" or what?

Enjoy your day off!
