Two posts in one day!
Well...I have spent some time doing some cool projects.
I have yet to put the finishing
touches on them...but I thought I would show you them thus far!
This first one is one I have been thinking of doing for years! So finally I have tried it on a small scale to see if I am even capable!
This is on a medium size canvas. First I had to sketch the image onto the canvas.
Then I used drywall mud to add the 3D effect!
I did about 3 coats. Next time I would stop at 2. Here it is dried.
I think I am going to paint the exposed canvas with black. Then spray it to seal it...and...
its done! (My next plan is to pick a wall and get 'mudding'!!)
Next I did a paper wreath! They are all over Pinterest right now!!
I have a collection of pretty old books. This one was an old Canadian Dictionary for Schools.
Last printed in 1944.
I gingerly took it apart! The pages were quite brittle. I would compare them to Philo pastry!!
Next I rolled a ton of them into cone shapes and used a piece of tape to hold them.
Then I stapled them to a square of cardboard starting at 12, 3,6,& 9 0'clock positions.
Now...I have to go hunting for some bling for the center!
Not sure what room I like this for yet. The office is kinda neat because it is a dictionary!
BUT....made my craft room will win out!
I will post the projects when they are hanging in their new homes!!
Thanks for stopping by!
