~ Saturday Night Project ~

" After "
" Before "

Ok, so I have to admit it has been a while since I have done anything, little own a project to blog about. I have looked at this large canvas for weeks-sitting in the hallway. What to do, what to paint. It is a large one that you can get at any Michaels, and for 40-50% off depending on the sales and their coupons. So a large $20.00 canvas that began so dull can actually look quite fantastic if you have the inspiration- a photo (rubber stamp in my case), a projector, and a black paint pen. Paint the background any color ( I used my furniture paint) and begin........
