Chunky Art ala Studio 490!

Posted on

Over at the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group we’re having a Chunky ATC swap.The recipient of mine is my friend, Eileen.  Eileen creates fabulous art (check it out here) so I was a little nervous but with Wendy’s great stamps, Art Parts & Clearly for Art, I forged ahead!  First thing I had to do was get my hands on some 2.5 inch pieces of a 2 x 4 – you’d think being in the wood product-rich Pacific Northwest that would be easy, but it took three lumber stores before I found one to help me out!

So after a bit of sanding and a coat of gesso, I got out the Paint Dabbers, Distress & Archival Inks to use with my Studio 490 supplies.  Here’s the result.

It’s all packaged up and ready for its journey to Eileen’s home in the Bronx, NY.  I hope she’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.  Let me know what you think.

We’re off to the local fair this evening to see/hear the Oak Ridge Boys!  I’m looking forward to it.

  6. Absolutely stunning, Vic!! Take it to B&H and show them what you did with the wood they cut for you. I think they would love to see what you have done. 🙂

  7. Looks great, Vic! She will love your piece of art! I had my dh cut some pieces of 2 x 4 for me last year. I had envisioned doing the 12 days of Christmas, but time got away from me. Maybe this year…
