Love the paintings! Can you tell me how you did that? I need some like that to decorate my massage room!

I destashed four canvas', spackle, paint, and shoe polish. I am not particularly skilled, but I am enthusiastic. I started a painting yesterday, but decided I prefered the background to the finished painting. So, today I made a series of three without a distracting picture of flowers.

I also finished a lap version of the Ron's blanket using 25 squares that I made and received in swaps. I need to get pics in the daylight.

I used Spackle to texture the canvas. Just spread it thinly in different directions. I used the pink stuff so I knew when it was dry. Then I painted the canvas with a white/mustard yellow blend then mixed in blue to some for a turquoise shade to blend in on one end. The large had brown on the very ends to darken it more. Only the soft yellow is brushed into all the crevices. When that was dry I rubbed brown shoe polish onto them to bring out the texture more. I am planning to spray with a matte top coat to protect them more.

Inspiration without application is moot.

Is this a personal sewing binge or a Craftster-wide SAL? Because that is what I plan on working on most next month, many sewing projects before I toss myself back into school. [ugh, there is something wrong with me Wink]

rottenlittleboys...just a personal sewing binge!  I hope to improve skills by massive amt. of projects... Roll Eyes  And I've got my list RiTe here by the computer as a reminder.  
I had piles of yarn around the living room (still do) but most of that has either been used or is stashed away in drawers downstairs.  
So w/sewing projects, I'll get out one thing at a time and get it finished and move on...I hope to re-cut a robe bodice and get it finished right off! =]

what kind of things are you planning on working on??

Oh, and it helps that the new season of Project Runway is starting today...not that I design(by a far sight!), but it always makes me wonder...how do they DO that??? =]  Anyone else tuning in???
