Latest Project and Fun Class

Last night I finished a project I have for sale and thought I would share.

My Mother found this at a garage sale for me and it looked like this..

This piece is much newer than the pieces I usually paint but I like how it turned out.

I did a lot of distressing on this one too--I think the distressing brought it to life. I hope there is someone out there who will love this piece :)

Update: I put it on the local Facebook classifieds and it sold within minutes--with a line of people wanting it next if the first person didn't get it. So I guess I found several people that love it :)

Last night Janae and I took such a fun class! It was a Layered Patina advanced painting class. It was taught by my blogging friend Amanda from Girl in Pink. This is the second class Janae and I have taken from her and we enjoy them so much!

It was a great evening and really inspired my creativity. We made canvas' using layers of different protects...my favorite protect was fine stone. It was pretty awesome :) 

I just love how old this looks!

We used learned how to use transfer gel and made a adorable little blessings board.

Can't wait to do some projects with these new techniques!

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

I sure wish that I lived near you, I'd surely be taking those classes with you...Amanda is amazing!
Love your project board it is beautiful...I'm sure you will be displaying it proudly!

Hi Sandy,
I think the little chest was aged to perfection! I'm not surprised it sold so quickly.

Looks like a fun project. Creative classes are always so much fun and inspiring.
