it was super fun to get together with girlfriends and work on this painting a few weeks ago, but it just wasn't something i loved... and, this picture:
kept coming to mind that i had pinned for a future project day. there's no link to the original source from pinterest. i tried to find it, but no luck. i did, however, find another blogger that posted a pic of her version:
and funny enough, she was unable to find the original source either.
anyway, back to the therapy discussion: canvas in hand, a few leftover bottles of craft paint, and some fun paper at a scrapbook retreat for a couple of days...
this is one of the first things i worked on while i was there. just painted over the phone booth and went to work on this guy.
i punched a large circle out of printed paper for the center and then made a template for the petals that i loosely followed.
the pieces are all adhered with mod podge, which goes on white like this:
and then dries clear like this:
once it dried, i trimmed the pieces sticking off the edges and coated the whole thing again with mod podge - so the sheen would all be the same, plus i wanted it nice and sealed. added a few little rhinestones to the polka dotted paper and called it done!
it's in its happy little home on my kitchen counter now. and i love it!
