I spent part of the day doing this...
So later I could do this...
Prep work seems to take so much time and usually I just want to jump right in and paint. These all have book pages on them and three of them also have old sewing pattern paper, too. Not sure what's going to happen with them but they're ready and waiting for me. The two tall ones are canvases and the other four are all plaques from the dollar store. Gotta love that place!
Last night I played around on a photo editing site called picmonkey. I had so much fun messing with my pictures. Here's what I did...
This older painting...(before)
became this after I used a technique on it
and gave it a frame.
I also played around with this one...
She now has some faint writing across her face.
I think it adds another layer to her.
What do you think?
Then I gave her some cracked and peeling paint.
I played with several of my paintings on this site.
Some of the techniques will not be free after the trial period
but that's okay. I had fun playing with them now.
Today I think I'll pick one of those prepped pieces and get busy. I hope wherever you are that you have a fun day, too.
