Feeling like an understudy on my first night on Broadway

First times can be scary. I've never had a blog before.

This was my attempt at decorating a very ugly white fan, which we do need on the two or so hot days in the Pacific NW. I started with a drawing I made copying elements from various fabrics from the book "Art Deco Textiles" by Alain-Rene Hardy using my color scheme in my bedroom.

Here is the drawing:

Next, the image was scanned and printed it onto self-adhesive paper for inkjet printers. I had to piece together two sheets to get a complete image to cover each fan blade. I scanned the image to be the exact width of the blade. (Hat tip to my husband who did the scanning and really matched the color well to the original.)
