Hello crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! I spent my day off trying to get the art house rearranged and organized. It's still a work in progress, but it's getting there. Hope to share pics soon.
Today I am sharing a little wood block that I made while I was at my friend Kristie's last weekend. The wood block is 6" x 4" x 1". I painted the block in three sections, brown on the bottom, blue in the middle and pink on the top, blending each together slightly. I added some texture paint to the bottom section to create a sandy beach look.
I wrote the saying "Mermaids with upon starfish" with a block marker and then went over it with a white gel pen. The little acrylic starfish is first painted with gesso, then with a dark flesh color and finally sprayed with brown ink. I will have the starfish for sale in my Etsy shop soon, so check back soon!!
This little wood block can be a shelf sitter or add a hanger to the back to be able to hang it on the wall. I have more of these wood blocks that I will paint, maybe some more of the same, but I have other ideas floating around in my head.
That's all from me today. I'll be back soon with more fun projects!
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!!
