My priceless work of ART!
For those of you that don't know we are building a new house
So that means my son needs a NEW theme for his NEW room!
See his old room HERE
I have decided to make his new room BRIGHT and CHEERY
with a Sesame Street theme!!
These are the colors I have chosen to paint in his room when our house is ready....
BUT in the meantime.....
I decided to make a MASTER PIECE :-)
I got my inspiration from Jennifer @ Hope Studios
She has a GREAT adult version.
by this awesome video on YOUTUBE......
They took over 3000 paint samples and made the Mona Lisa!!!!!!
Here's What I Used:
Foam Numbers and Letters
Mod Podge~Matte Mat
Apple Red Paint
Wafer Board 21x24
(This was scrap wood the hubby had lying around)
First I painted the edges of my board
I laid out my paint samples...I overlapped them to cover the paint name and numbers
I sprayed a layer of adhesive and laid a row of samples then
again and again.....
Note: I should have measured an inch all around the edge but I was lazy so I got a tad bit off centered....but it's ART:-0
I painted around the outer seams just cause I like the look
Go over any areas that may be curling up and spray adhesive again for a flat smooth look
I was gonna use vinyl lettering but I'm so glad I found these foam
letters and numbers......spray adhesive letters and numbers
I'm LOVIN it!
Let the spray adhesive dry 1/2 hr
1st coat of Mod Podge
I used 3 thick coats of Mod Podge (the whole bottle)
Wait 20-30 between each coat
After third coat wait 24hrs to dry
There are so many foam shapes from flowers, hearts, animals to glitters stars......and all kinds of stock paper in the scrapbook/craft section of many stores
So pick some pretty colors, use your imagination and have fun!
