Mason Jar Painting

Standard

Still using the mason jars from my cousin’s wedding, I decided to paint this one with chickens.  I think it has a bit of a kitchen-y feel to it now:)  They did not quite come out as well as I was hoping, but I still think they look pretty cute.

While I should be painting hubcaps for Christmas presents (I have a to-do list of paintings!), these chickens just spoke to me.  It only took me a day and it was fun to paint something other than a hubcap.  On other creative news notes, I finally bought myself a new sketchbook.  There are now 50 blank pages of potential!  As for my next project, I’m not sure what is on the agenda.  There are a lot of possibilities, so we will see.

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday:)

Happy Halloween!

Standard

CIMG1480Happy Halloween everybody!  These three crafts are based off of something I found on Pinterest (my knew obsession)!  My cousin was married in the middle of October and as a party favor, we were able to keep our glasses which were mason jars.  Now, I’ve been dying to get my hands on some mason jars.  I did not know what I would do with them yet, but I knew I was going to paint them.  Given the proximity to Halloween, I thought I would do something festive and this is what it turned out to be – a pumpkin, ghost, and Frankenstein.

I think they came out well and I love seeing them every day on my stove:)  Hope all of you have a ghoulish evening and take advantage of opportunity to eat lots of candy!
