The frames were all mismatched, so I unified them with a coat of my favorite matte acrylic paint (these paints are Americana, and a favorite for four reasons: 1.they coat so well that you don't have to use the whole bottle at one go, 2.they come in about a million billion colors, 3.that lovely matte finish, and 4.they are inexpensive enough to use for everyday crafty stuff!)
These weren't my idea--they are for a baby boy's nursery, and the mama had pinned to Pinterest a similar project. I changed the animals somewhat, and made the colors to match their nursery.
(If you want to see the original collaged pages, just scroll down a post. The finished versions are high quality color copies of the animals cut from those collaged papers.)
And now for some spring:
|The daffodils are blooming again!|
It's been ages since I've joined any challenges, but here we go:
Altered Eclectics: March (anything goes, altered or mixed media)
**Art*Journal*Journey: "If you go down to the woods" (do these creatures fit that theme, or what!?!)
Pixel and Paper Challenge--monochromatic (each animal is a monochromatic collage of a color from the baby's nursery)
Well, that was fun . . .
