1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Splatter painted nightstand (image heavy) on: February 21, 2009 08:49:29 PM
I knew that my dorm room was going to be ugly and boring before I even got to school... SO, one night last August, before I left, I found this old white nightstand in my basement and decided to change it up a bit, just to add something different to my otherwise bland room.

(The neighborhood kids looked at me like I was crazy as I was doing this... I was running around my front lawn splattering green paint everywhere... really, what's wrong with that? I didn't get any on them...)

Right side:

Left side:

Front on, minus the drawers:

Red drawer: (I know the drawers look skewed... I took the pictures from a weird angle)

Blue drawer:

Here's what it looks like all put together: (I cropped out the rest of my dorm room because... it's a mess)

I like it, for the most part. With splatters you never can really know just how it's going to turn out...

The only thing is... when I was splattering the green and then the red, my brush was dry. For the blue, it wasn't as dry as I had thought, and that definitely changed the way the paint looks (I don't know if you can tell that from these pictures, however). It didn't necessarially change it in a bad way, but it's not consistent with the other colors.
Also, it was difficult to get the green up towards the top of that little... alcove thing. You can't really notice it though, unless you're looking at it straight on, two feet off the ground.

What do you think? Smiley

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / It's Raining Men! (...and freezer paper) on: August 08, 2008 07:56:01 PM
This is the second shirt that I've made using freezer paper/printed off designs. I was looking through stencils at Stencilry (http://www.kittybuttons.com/wordpress/) and found this stencil (http://www.kittybuttons.com/stencils/categories/artwork/raining-men-hallelujah.jpg), which seemed pretty easy.

This is the shirt on the table...

And here it is on...

Some of the lines could've come out a bit crisper... but overall I don't think it's too bad for a 2nd try.
