I have a few more pieces that I've finished and ready to take with me for my show when I leave tommorrow--
This is on a 12 x 22 pine board. I get these pine plank boards at Lowes for $8.00, and then I just cut them to the size I want. They're about an inch thick, and the sides are rough, unfinished, which I like, because it adds to the shabbiness of the piece. This really is a mixed media piece. I collaged book pages and scrapbook paper on it, and I attached a cupboard door handle that I found in my vast array of old hardware:
And still love using my Golden's crackle paste--
And I have one more piece of furniture that I finished. I had a before shot of this, but somehow it got deleted. It's a really neat vintage piece--kind of a chair, desk, table combo. I can see this in a ladies bedroom.
Also I must thank Jackie for this award--
This is such a compliment for me. I found her blog, before she found mine, and I was so inspired by her art. You have to go visit Me Down To A Fine Art! Thank you Jackie!
And also, something new for me--I've been tagged by Tracey at Glitterbug Studios. This sounds like fun, but I know that I'm not going to have time right now, because I'm getting ready to leave tomorrow morning. I'm going to try next week, though. I want to say thank you to Tracey (do you know how talented this lady is?!!--go check her out) for tagging me. You all know how encouraging it is to be recognized by other artists. I will always appreciate this!! And thanks you two for making my week!
So I'm leaving tomorrow, and will be gone until Sunday, BUT I am taking my Dell with me. This is the first time I can do this, because I just bought this laptop a few months ago. I think that I would go through some serious internet withdrawal problems if I didn't take it. I'm hoping that the motel that we're staying in has free internet service. As much as I would like being one of those cool people at Starbuck's sipping on my latte with my laptop, I'd rather be in my motel room with it. So I'll be checking in on everyone this weekend--hope everyone has a great warm weekend!
