Watercolor Stencil Portrait + TUTORIAL - MORE ART, LESS CRAFT. Okay kids, for leaving me all those wonderful and inspiring comments, I give you: Watercolor Stencil Portraiting - The Tutorial!
Bear with me, it's almost midnight and I am exhausted, and I leave for vacation tomorrow. And I've never done a tutorial before. Hahaha. Art 1. Optical Design. I Love Old Windows. I loved the window project that Lisa at Serendipity Chic Design did.
Her husband found some great old windows at the dump! Soon after her post, I saw an ad for windows that had been taken out of a house from 1865. I talked my husband in to driving 100 miles roundtrip to go pick some up. Make Chalk Rocks and Homemade Chalk Board Paint. I recently saw these Chalkboard Rocks from Pottery Barn that you can write on with chalk and thought…”I can make those!”
So I did! I had been wanting to paint something with chalk board paint (which has been all the rage on the craft blogs the past several months) to try out a homemade chalk paintrecipe I found while browsing Martha Stewart’s site a while back. So I set out to make chalkboard paint.
