Just Us Girls: New Painting Project

by Meredith 26. July 2017 16:50

I'm trying something very new for me. I've taken one of my favorite photos, run some filters on it via Photoshop, transferred to canvas via the grid method, and started to paint in blocks of color. I know this is in the early, ugly stages and this has been really, really hard. Though it looks way better on camera and from a distance. And squinting. With your eyes closed.

Laundry Room Signs: Complete!

by Meredith 9. July 2017 11:43

I'm calling the project done (for now). I found most of the "LAUNDRY" letters on discount at a craft store. I was missing an "N" and "R" but some creative surgery fixed that. More scrapbook paper and paint to match the colors in the room and they are good to go.

Hunter got the last shelf put in. We've done just about all there is to do in this room of the house...for now.  A future project is to tile the counters and maybe replace the sink. But the room is painted, laundry signs are up, and everything has its own storage space (especially after I finish putting things away). On to the next room!

About Meredith Cook

Welcome to my repository of creative expression. I'm not a happy camper unless I am making something and over the years I have dabbled in quite a few different kinds of art projects. Some projects come from taking art classes, others are completely hobby driven, and projects like home decor come from a need to customize an item and make it better or unique. The overall theme behind what I do is to learn how to manipulate objects and practice what I know about visual aesthetic and good design. Oh yeah, and to have fun.
