Summer Dreams House

Recycled house made from the top of a fence post!
Moo Mania Challenge

The Moo Mania Challenge is to make a recycled piece of artwork.
Luckily my brother has been busy building fences at my moms house and his.  A couple of weeks age I asked him if I could have the scrap from the fencing.  Also if he could cut the "a little wonky!".  Yup theta what I asked!  And he was nice enough to entertain me! Now I have a box of shapes, its great! So here goes!

Sand & Prime

While the gesso is drying run to staples to get color copies!!!
( Trying to use my own work as much as possible!)
Oh by the way Staples was crazy!!! Last minute school supplies!

Add copies with gel medium

Remember theres two sides!!!

Start Painting

I used stencils, my fingers, a brush, and sponges.  
Basicly a little of everything.
I got so involved I forgot to take pictures! Oops!

Finished Piece

I really enjoyed this! Hope you do too!
Luckily I have a lot more scraps of wood!

  3. I really liked seeing the process behind the finished artwork... and you are very brave heading into Staples at back to schooltime...xx

    1. I have to say it felt good to go to the self serve area and walk through the gigantic line to get out of staples! I then took my son to Walgreens to get a notebook! No line there!

  4. This beautiful house really spoke to me. I love it. You did a fantastic job with that wood. Great idea for the recycling project, and fab art, too!
