Not So Great After All

Have you ever had an idea that you thought was so great that you amazed yourself with your creativity and you couldn't wait to see it come together?  I thought I was a genius when I came up with this idea.  I couldn't imagine it being anything less than magnificent!  

Now I consider it a work in progress.  

It didn't turn out as Magnificent as I had envisioned, but that's OK because I know with a few additions this will turn out to be something I will be proud of.






I took three canvases that I bought at Dollar Tree a few years ago and painted over the existing pictures.


Next I printed three graphics from The Graphics Fairy.
The Graphics Fairy


And used Mod Podge to adhere them to the canvas.





I aged them a bit with watered down paint.


We had a full length mirror that was broken some time ago and I saved the frame.  I thought it would be a good idea to put these items together.  



















It needs something else so I will live with it a day or two and see what I can come up with.  



You can find me on Facebook, just look for the link on the sidebar.

  4. I think you did a great job on the artwork. Maybe a background other than the wall would make them pop more.
