Honestly, I don’t know where my thyme goes lately! It seems to be flying by! The good news is, I have been spending some time in my studio having fun redoing some things that have been patiently collecting dust for the last few years! I have several things in various stages of completion, but thought I would give you a teaser on a few items I have completed!
While digging through my stash of stuff to paint, I stumbled over these candle sticks.
I can’t figure out what the person that originally painted them was trying to accomplish! Are they crawfish or shrimp gone wrong, abstract carrots.. or worse?? Well, rather than ponder the question any longer, I did what I do best! I painted over them!
I pulled out my can of Benjamin Moore’s Aura. The color is Lodge. I live this color! It is a soft brown with green undertones. I love Aura because it is self priming and covers like a dream! One coat and the questionable paintings on those candlesticks was gone forever!
Next, a coat of crackle medium and a topcoat of an off white paint and I could sit back and watch the paint crack! A quick coating of glaze to age , and I was loving these candlesticks and wondering why I waited so long to redo them!
I brought them in, added some hay, some pumpkins, and a bit of twine ribbon and they are now adding to my fall décor!
I also added this little sign that I painted this week! I love the sentiment behind it! Originally, I thought it would be great at my back door, where everyone seems to enter, but the more I read it, I kept asking myself the question…. Of course I decided I was the good witch!
Just a sneak preview of things to come!! I am working on some tutorials on glazing, priming, painting, etc. So I hope you will come back when you have thyme!
