This is my porch door. I had the Baha'i quote hanging in a frame on the door for several years. Recently, I saw a friends door with some flowers on it and got all inspired. I didnt make a plan for this mural. I just put in some music and went wild. It was done almost entirely with cloth rags.

For this one I painted the pine frame brown and wiped it off a little to make it look more stained than painted. The flowers are just scrap book paper. The image was in black and white. I took very wet pink acrylic paint and some metalic powder and washed over several of the flowers. I used a brayer to flatten it and allowed some of the brown to touch the image. Lastly, I used sand paper on all of the endges to rough it up for a shabby look. :)
