Join me here in my Art Barn for a super fun day of creativity and inspiration!  We’re going to get all painty and crafty and transform thrift store paintings into original soulful signs.  This is one of my most favorite things to do, and I can’t wait to show you how!!!

It’s no secret that I LOVE to go thrifting and junking, and one thing I always look for are cast-off dusty paintings that need to be rescued and revived with a little TLC.  You’re going to choose an old painting from my, ahem, enormous stash and make it into something unique and original that will knock your socks off!!!

We’re going to use stencils and stickers and masks and patterns, oh my!  And we’ll use fun collage techniques.  I’ll show you lots of different techniques like using fabric and beads and other materials and mediums to make yummy textures.

And the frames!!  Oh how we will embellish them!  We will prettify what are often sad old excuses for frames.

You’re going to learn how to take apart and re-work old paintings.  I have lots of examples to show you.  It might even inspire you to look at things that are already on your walls at home and “freshen” them up this way!img_7997Think of these as a creative collaboration between you and the person who made the original painting.  You’re adding your own unique flavor, remodeling and adding to the old painting.

So let’s have some fun together!!!  More info & Register here:  Make A Sign Registration
