Spring is here! The days are getting warmer and longer, and that means more time outside, which means it’s the perfect time to refresh your outdoor living space.
We just moved from Las Vegas to the Pacific Northwest, and I am enjoying spring in a whole new way this year. Our new home came with a whole lot of open outdoor space and green growing things that we are trying to figure out what to do with. 😂 It’s going to take some time to fully settle into our new outdoor spaces, but I seeing my little dot painted planter on our deck brings a smile to my face.
Have you tried dot painting? I have seen so many beautiful mandala projects and inspiring videos online, and have been wanting to give it a try for a while. I tried to put my own spin on the technique and took inspiration from vintage penny tile mosaics for my design.
Dot painting is such a fun and relaxing craft. You can really kind of zen out as you stamp away. If you want you make your own dot painted planter, keep on reading.
