I am having trouble posting the pictures. Hope this works this time.
I used a sheet of corrugated metal that I purchased at the hardware story to give some kind of texture background to my bugs. I drew the bugs and flower freehand (I have ZERO artistic talent) and then cut them out of plywood with a jigsaw (zero talent there too). I used exterior sample paints that you can get now at hardware stores. I think they cost $2 or $3 each.
I made the objects "3d" by mounting them on small pieces of 2x4s that I cut with a skilsaw (zero talent).
I have yet to finish. Still need to do bottom piece with grasses and lady bugs.
Do you like? A before and after pic! I can only give you the links to my pics for now!
