I promise I am still here, and I am still crafting. Still taking pictures and making jewelry. Just not making much time for blogging. I know, no fun, right? I just can't seem to find the focus to write.
Here is a piece I have been working on for our bedroom. I love The Smashing Pumpkins, and "Tonight, Tonight" is one of my favorite songs they have done. I thought it would work well above our bed.
I started with the picture above, which is a piece of old decor from a Subway store. My mom had it in her yard and I asked for it. It is huge and I thought it would be fun to paint over. I took the frame off and put a coat of gesso over the picture (which is two sheets of plastic with foam in the middle) and added texture with Liquitex Basics modeling paste. Since I am not selling the piece I just used Apple Barrel and Fold Art fabric paints. I printed the words out and projected them up with my Art Tracer Jr Projector and penciled them in.
Here's the finished painting. I am quite happy with it, and can't wait to get it up on the wall. First I need to paint some shutters that I will used as a headboard.
Hubby picked the font out. I really like it!
