ART ON THE CHEAP OR WASTE NOT WANT NOT.

Standard
Today it is stormy, cold, wet and windy and today, of all days I was compelled to create. I lost my art room to support the remodeling cause so I gathered my supplies and set up camp in our gazeboimage

My canvas is a large board picked up from the wood scrap pile at Home Depot. I discovered, much to my delight, that Home Depot sells 2 quart containers of paint for 2 bucks each. I bought 13 in assorted colors then dropped in to the Michaels store with a 50% off coupon which I used to buy a cool Martha Stewart set of letters to decoupage. Iā€™ m not gifted in making up art out of my head but I can do a fair to half baked copy of what I see so I tried my hand at my favorite book by Nancy Tillman, WHEREVER YOU ARE MY LOVE WILL FIND YOU. I stenciled words Sing Dance Rejoice because I want to blend the spirit of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then as a final touch I tried to splatter white to create the starry effect Nancy added to her book cover and to my horror I totally goofed and big runny gobs of white paint were dripping down everywhere. O NO!!! I groaned in shocked disbelief. Then determining not to put another ounce of energy into my masterpiece gone wrong I turned the dance under the moon into a dance in the sprinklers under the moon. What do you think? Is it worth saving?
