Because Painted is Pretty!




Y'all know I love to work on wood. I would pick wood to paint on over canvas any day. This one is an 8 x 10 piece of scrap wood, and I cut the toothbrush out of thin plywood using my scroll saw. Using scrap wood to paint on is my favorite...recycling scraps is green, and I just like the look! I think this one is super cute in a kids bathroom, where they may need a not-so-subtle reminder.

I have some favorite new blogs that I put on my blogroll yesterday. One of them is Life in Grace, (if you've come from there, WELCOME!!) and she's having a painted wood party today. I can't wait to see what everyone is showing off. You have to check out her beautiful new kitchen. By the way, you have to check out her blog. She has great style, beautiful kids, and writes wonderfully about religion, family, decor, and just plain life.

And if you're interested in seeing some more of my mixed-media art on wood, I put just a few links below:

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend. I've got new carpet and tile coming today and I can't wait!!:)

Love your sign! It looks like we have the same taste in art! I can tell by the sign and just one look at the covers of your books on tile mosaics!

Have a great week!

Love it! I love to paint on wood, too! This sign is mega cute! I will have to come back to this blog :-) Once I painted starry night on our coffee table because I just couldn't stand how ugly it was to look at anymore! Great job!

It turns out upon exploring that I've been here before, liked it, and forgotten. So I just added you to my reader so it won't happen again!

Hey Chrissie! I'm with you....I LOVE wood. I don't even buy canvas anymore. And congrats on the new tile and carpet. Our guys started our patio and sod today and couldn't stop smiling like a little schoolgirl all day!
Happy week...
