Sometimes I try to be crafty, but it just doesn't work. I love pretending like I'm artsy and creative and can do cool things. So I was looking for a new piece of artwork and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on something new. I decided to take an old canvas that we had hanging in her old house and repaint it.
It started out with a classic gray coat. I thought it would be modern and trendy and cute... Then I made a turquise then a pink then the splattering started. It was fun until I stood back and realized it was hideous and straight out of 1982!
Then came the brush smears. "Ya! This will make it better!" Wrong. It was ugly. I was planning to start over and paint over it all with a brand new look.
I put It in the front closet to wait. The next day boots and Courtney decided that that was their new playroom. After swinging on the coatrack numerous times, he let go and landed right on the fabulously 80's painting hand painted by yours truly. Well bye bye! Looks like I will be buying something to hang!
You artsy people out there... Any tips?!
