Lately I've been seeing a lot of mix media based on faces. My fascination has grown so this past weekend I decided to create my first piece of what I call Modern Art.
For the base I used a piece of wood approximately 14"x 8" x 2". I then covered with left over paper and created on top making more and more layers of paints, sprays, inks, stamps, stencilling, modelling paste, inktense pencils...etc. until I was happy with the results. The best part about creating on wood is that if you hate it you can sand it off and start over (ummmm I did that twice :)
The face was hand drawn and I have to admit I am very pleased with the end result.
This winter I seen this set of 3 end tables for sale and my mind went wild with possibilities! So off I sent my husband to pick these beauties up. The smallest and the medium one got sanded down quite quickly as they were flat on top.
Still not sure what I wanted to do with them I took them to my craft space to stare at for a few weeks.
This is what I did this weekend!
Smallest 14x14" top
(Now a plant stand)
Medium 20 x 20" top
(Now a computer table in our living space)
I did some basic paper to wood with sanding and distressing. The white space was painted with chalk paint and they were sealed with a clear sealant.
They look old, rustic and I LOVE them :)
The largest of the three is still a work in progress!
Hope you enjoy and get inspired to use your paper on home decor pieces to freshen them up.
