I had been given some several canvas' from when my grandfather cleaned out his house, and wasn't sure what to do with them... So I went to Hobby Lobby for ideas! And I found...
I of course used my 40% off digital coupon on my phone!
I've never played with plaster so it was a fun mess!
(ignore my icky towel covered in paint from previous projects)
I started on a "trial canvas" because I thought the first would turn out aweful... but
I eneded up liking it... So I freehanded a heart with a spoon.
Used the end of a paint brush to add some decorations.
Paint on sale! (ignore my thumper pj's)
Painted it red!
Added some black on the outside & LOVE IT!!
So off to a BIGGER canvas I go...
I painted it brown and mapped out my cross.
Added the plaster with designs using the paint brush like I did on the heart.
I painted the cross red
I did darken it with brown paint on a wet paper towel and dabbed it on over the red.
I added scrapbook paper to frame the cross.
To show the 3D that the pictures was stealing from it.
Finished, and side by side...
So how's my running coming along?
I didn't hit my goal of running 2.5miles today, it was 85 degrees and not a cloud found in the sky.
But here it is... (run 3/17/11)
I will say that knowing I was going to put my run on todays craft blog did motivate me to run further, and it was aweful. But with Warrior Dash around the corner I better keep it up!!
