I LOVE finding diamonds…don’t you? While out at my favorite second hand or as the car makers like to call it, “Certified Previously Owned”
can needs to be made desirable)
I found this UGLY (with a capital U) picture wrapped in this equally ugly Bee-right Gold frame…ARGH
The “painting” turned out to be a poster, glued to foam-core and then over-brushed with acrylic gel medium. But as I had seen all the chalk boards being created in blog-land…I decided to make one as well.
I know, not to original…but….
I took the “painting” out and ran to HD to get a piece of masonite cut. Can you believe the guy at HD LIKED the “painting”, asked if I painted it (OMG). I smiled sweetly and said….”hmmmmm….no…”
After a little spray chalk board paint, and leftover black acrylic paint rubbed-on-rubbed-off..this is the finished product.
(please ignore the ugly phone…one day it will go away, but right now I have a hubby who hasn’t embraced a cell phone yet)
