MacKenzie Childs Inspired Vase

After making my Mackenzie-Childs inspired pumpkins the other day, I found myself searching through their website and finding more and more things to swoon over.  They have a pattern called Parchment which is absolutely beautiful and coordinates with my decor.  

I literally used the same paints and technique as I used for my pumpkins.
I painted each square of the grid pattern using one easy step.  I squeeze a drop of each of the colors I am using next to each other and load up my brush as shown.  That way when I paint the shading is already done.  After everything is dry I coated the piece with polyurethane to give it the same shiny look.  

Not bad for a free project.

Can't wait to hear what you think.
