1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Painted tins for my bathroom 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...

*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
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Collage Painting 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.
