Dear Auntie Moonbeam
Here’s a fun one!
Last week Danielle at Framed Frosting issued a crafting challenge. Make something, anything, as long as you use craft paint.
Since I can’t resist a dare (yup, apparently I am perpetually an 8-year-old girl) I signed up. It’s on baby!
But what to make? Hmmm…
Then I had remembered an idea that had been percolating on my cranial backburner for a while.
It started when I saw this. Yummy, no? Someday I will build something like this in my home…
Then I saw this. Springtime pretty!
A little photoshop foolery and I had this:
Can you see where this is going yet? Yeah, neither did I but I knew it had potential.
Then the materials – the ever important craft paint, ruler, pencil, canvas and of course an itty bitty die.
Why the die? ‘Cause it was the perfect size and I was tired of stepping on it all the damned time.
Let that be your warning, tiny sharp Legos. You keep cutting me and I will repurpose you into craft supplies. No mercy!
Here’s where I started…at this point I can say with absolute certainty that I had absolutely no certainty what this was going to look like.
A couple of hours (and a few episodes of Arrested Development) later and I had this sloppy slab of pink awesomeness.
Some yummy close ups:
Here’s a shot I took in front of a window to see how the light filters through the colours. I like that there are still tiny gaps of canvas visible.
Thanks Danielle for hosting such a fun party! I’m excited to see what material you choose next!
