Here is what I created for this linky party....
For my project, I created a canvas sign! I started with the two darkest hues underneath….I felt they were a little overpowering for my décor. I swiped them in 3 equal areas using a drybrush technique. Once dry, I applied a crackle medium. Once that was dry, I applied the other 3 hues, a teal, light blue and light purple, also using a dry brush technique, but alternating and combining the colors so as to not to be too harsh. Once they were dry and crackled, with the dark purple and dark green coming thru…I cut black vinyl in the phrase, “Keep Calm & shake your tailfeathers”. That basically means…”Chill out and shake yo’ ass”…shake that ass fo’ me”. (inside joke!) As it would happen…all of my bathrooms are that beautiful teal color, so I have a reminder to my guests to “Shake ‘dat ass” ummm, “tailfeather”. Once the vinyl was applied, I finished it with a black and silver mesh ribbon and some silver nailhead bling mesh cut to one row. I have to say….I LOOOOVVVVEEEE IT! It adds a little of my crafty self (and sass!!!) to a very forgotten room of our home!
Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!
