Thrifty Art Thursday:
Cook Book Stand
As I was watching my friend’s Tara video where she revamped a picture into something new this idea was born. I broadcast Live video to my Facebook page, YouTube channel and Twitch.tv from my home and take on a new project every Thursday at 2pm Central time.
My debut was about redoing this cook book stand, or, at least, that’s what I think it is.
there was nothing wrong with it, but the colors…
So I got to work and applied two coats of white gesso. Completely unnecessary as I realized later.
I applied a nice coat of Mod Podge and added the torn sheet with quotes on top. You are welcome to download the free printable here.
Then, another coat of mod podge and more pieces from the same sheet.
Choosing colors can be a chore, so I went into my Pinterest Color Collection and printed out this one. I feel awful for not tagging where this color palette is from, I promise I’ll do better next time. If you know who this image belongs to, please, let me know and I’ll give them proper credit.
matching colors and paints!
I painted the stand making sure the mod podge was completely dry.
I added doodle designs with my gold Posca pen.
then, some glitter and let it dry.
The last few steps were far in between since it’s cold and spray paint took forever to dry.
and, the final product!
