i was at my local sherman williams store picking up some paint and i asked the guy-"what do you do with the old wallpaper books", he said"do you want to be on the list?", of course, i said YES!!! so, in a couple of days i get a call to come pickup some books, i thought there would be a couple, there were *8*...i was so excited!!!! so there they sat in my studio basement for awhile...i didnt really know where to start, i had seen some beautiful things on etsy and some of the other blogs, i venture to..so i started to go through the books and really look at the designs which are really beautiful including a couple of western wallpaper books and their designs are just as nice also..so i picked a couple of papers out and went from there..i like the words on this border-VIEUX AMIS..it means "old friends", so of course i had to add a dog and this particular dog is from an old postcard and he looks like our great dane-kaj...so i played around with this mess for a couple of days, took it apart meaning took the glued stuff off and reglued different things and i added the words-sons meilleurs means are best...so the caption is "old friends are best"....i really like the way it turned out, i think??
so you be the judge and tell me..it is not as easy as it looks...now what am i going to do with 8wallpaper books? i do not know...but i can have lots of practice art, cant i!>>>>>~*~*~*~*~*~
