Excuse my ignorance but before moving to Italy I had never heard of country painting and crafting before. Country is a big part of my life, but then I'm talking about the music genre. In Sweden I used to sing in a country group, Bellis Alba, if you're curious to listen to my voice you can do that here! Back to crafting though... last Friday I took a three hour Christmas decorations course at the local crafts store and I made these country painted wooden Christmas tree decorations. It's kind of weird but everyone agrees that they came out quite Swedish looking even though I let my instructor decide on the colours and she showed me how to make the snowflake pattern... When I came home I laquered (is that the word??) with normal glue mixed with a little water.
