Inspiration Wednesday videos. My daughter really wanted to join in the fun, so we bought ourselves some blank, pre-gessoed canvases, watched some videos, and played for the entire afternoon in my craft room. I just love her style - vintage, shabby chic, but with bright colors to fit her personality and match her blue-with-big-colored-polka-dots walls in her bedroom.
Some details, Meghan's first....
this technique* that Donna demonstrated in her video. I tore pieces of vintage sheet music, text, and patterned papers to create my background. A bit of tinted gesso, then lots of different paints, stains, splatters, and crayons over the top.
I hope you get time to play during this busy season - especially if you can play with family and friends! We are switching gears for the long holiday weekend - it's volleyball 24/7, with my daughter in her first big tournament of the season. I'm hoping to be able to get some downtime on the ol' iPad to vist all of your lovely blogs. Until then.... Happy New Year!
