I was excited because my neighbor (who builds marble counter tops) had just left a bunch of nice sized wood pieces that he didnt just want to throw out on my front porch. What an awesome neighbor, eh?
I knew I would think of something great to do with them and I finally did, well sort of. So, I covered a piece of wood from some of my all time favorite paper...ain't it purty? And with the rosettes that I learned to make over at Little Birdie Secrets I was able to add a nice touch to it. I really like how it turned out. Just don't know what in the world I will do WITH it. ha. But I must say though, I do enjoy just looking at it very day.
Do you have any ideas?
So, one day I was at the dollar store and found a set of wood carving tools...Who knew? I have to say I didnt have a clue how to use them but did that stop me?? I THINK NOT! I sat right down in my craft room and dreamed up a picture that would be easy to carve. Or so I thought.
I started chip,chip, chipping away at my drawing and came up with this:
I really didn't want to paint it because I really liked looking at it how it was. I knew it was missing something so I eventually painted it. It still seemed plain so I added more dots...
I guess I went dot crazy. If I could go back I might add less paint to the seeds. I'm a first timer though and I like it. I will probably put in my classroom someday. Until then, it has a place of honor in my kitchen window. Sure hope the sun wont fade it.
Hope you enjoyed my wood craftin fun. I would love to see the cool things you have done with wood! Have a great day you guys.
