I was checking out Keren Tamir's FAB blog & really connected with her DT eg for BITW... she was writing how she'd love to visit Italy... & I remembered the AMAZING times DH & I had exploring Italy, France & England [at different times, of course!!] .....& I wanted to show that. After all, travel is one of the ways many, many people discover the world around them as well more about themselves:):)
So, after checking the BITW site, I DISCOVERED you can do OTP projects as well as LO's. GREAT, since I'd just picked up this wooden [pine] frame in the Op Shop on Monday for $2!!!
I am soooo excited that I managed to do this, that there's going to be a few photos on the way through. Hope you can put up with the dribble... otherwise skip down the post to post to DISCOVER my entry:):):) I'm liking this word.......
Orf we goooooo:
|After gesso-ing the wood frame & adding alphas.|
|I added the glittery, hot pink & black eiffel tower.... not QUITE the colour scheme I had in mind...|
|So....after the inital layer of paint, gessoed it up:)|
|And after the 2nd layer of paint [blue this time:)], & some stamping, here 'tis. All pretty:):)|
|Just in case you were getting bored, here's the finished product. I took these photos in France, down the South West. That door is just a door in the street! The Roman statue is part of a museum in what was an old church!|
|Do you like what I've done to Big Ben???!!!! Those American Crafts glittery [in a good way] brads have been 'the' best buy:):)|
I guess I'd better stop now. Thanks to Bird is the Word for this 'DISCOVER' word.... it made me pull out those old photos...
