Aloha vs Unicorns and Rainbows

"Unicorns with rainbows!" That was the very enthusiastic reply by Larkin as to what she thought the motif of the canoe should be. We had a family vote and a pink and blue hibiscus theme out-voted the My-pretty-pony theme. Thank goodness.
We masked four panels to paint inside. One on either side of the bow and one on either side of the stern.
This is a hibiscus stencil we got on ebay for just a couple of dollars. We applied it to a piece of card stock and then cut it out. Using just enough paint to keep the brush damp was the trick so that it did not run.
We will start on the blue next weekend. Then a bow and stern grab loop (with a bit of fancy work, possibly), and we are ready to hit the water in the spring.
