1  Painted tins for my bathroom in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by cool_chic49651 on: December 08, 2005 09:22:26 AM
So I saw this really cool idea for some tins while i was browsing the Ikea website.  Here's the pic....

But i didn't like the colors but the idea of painting on tins was pretty cool, and I have lots of them around.  So i'm moving to a new apartment next week to start my internship and my new bathroom has no hidden storage.  It's just a pedestil (sp?) sink and open shelves so i though why not hide a bunch of junk in these tins.  So i painted them a couple of cute colors and think i might put my buddha painting in the bathroom too, so i think i'm going for some religion theme.  I put the elephant on one and might put a buddha on the other or something...i'm not sure..any ideas would be great.  Not to mention i tried to do something cool on the side of the tin and it didn't work out, i don't like it so if anyone has an idea let me know...I'm excited to see what everyone thinks. 

Tins right after i painted them the base color...

Side of tin, that i hate...

*i'm still really new to this, if you can't see the pictures please please please let me know and i'll try to fix it

This is the dress I made back in my Junior year of High School for my Junior prom.  Four years later I still LOVE it.  I even wore it again at another schools prom my senior year.  Part of me wants to sell it to make some money but i don't think i could give it up.

3  Collage Painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by cool_chic49651 on: December 04, 2005 09:50:59 PM
This is one of my most favorite pieces I've ever done.  It was an assignment for one of my painting classes.  We had to take pictures of ourselves and friends, blow them up, and then collage them together.  Then we painted it.  It was sooo much fun.  I advise everyone to try this one.  Make sure you post the pics if you do.  I would love to see what everyone elses turned out like.
