Pinterest Test : Soda Bottle Cherry Blossom Painting

I am sure that most of you have seen the gorgeous pin of the cherry blossoms using the bottom of a soda bottle and paint.

Pinterest: Cherry Blossom Painting DIY

(While this pin is listed under my boards, I am not the original owner. This was just an interesting pin that I came across and re-pinned)

Now, I will be the first to admit that I am absolutely crummy when it comes to drawing, I can't even draw a proper stick figure! ... Alright, that may be a slight exaggeration, but somewhat true. I saw this DIY Pin and instantly thought, "Hey, I can do that!" Sadly, it didn't turn out quite as I had hoped.

For starters, My flowers looked more like pink globs! I wish I had take a photo, but instead I instantly tossed the pink mess into the waste bin and tried again ... in the result of more pink blogs. I think this is my inner artist just telling me "YOU STINK!"

After two failed attempts, I pulled out my paint brushes and ended up just hand painting the entire thing.

So was this project as easy as described?

The Verdict: If you are patient and have a steady hand, then I guess it is. I don't really want to say a flat out "NO" but I really did have some problems with this one lol. If you have tried this pin with wonderful results, please post your outcome (and maybe some tips for the artistically challenged!)
