Pull up chair, grab your fave beverage . . .
(I am having Diet Cherry Coke, love love love)
Do you ever notice that anything tastes better when sipped from a vintage glass?
The Dutch girl is one of my favorites.
What have you been up to?
And me? I have been upcycling (torturing) some books.
I needed some decorative books but have not had time to go shopping for the right color.
(funny, but yes, I shop books for either content or decorative properties, I can't help it).
In the spirit of "getting things done", I decided to makeover my books with a swipe of the paintbrush.
Yeah, I could have just covered them with paper but I didn't want to go shopping for that either when I have a paint brush and paint right here.
Here is what I had to start with.
(not quite the look I was going for)
By the way, these are also my project books.
Project books? Yes, the ones I . . . um . . . tear pages out of for any random project.
Have I mentioned I love storing art supplies in the open if I can make it look pretty?
Gesso, I love you.
Even though gesso is a prep medium, I love it as a paint.
