Well, another year has started, and there's one new years resolution that I hold dear this year:
I will try to keep that in mind whenever I'm feeling like life's passing me by. Hope your ride into the new year went smoothly and that you will do at least a few things this year that you've always wanted to do.
I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Only three more days and the Christmas vacation is over. I've been wanting to play in my art journal this week, but I only got started today. So not much to show yet. But I did do something artsy. I have some old melamine trays that I've been using since my sister wanted to throw them out last year, and all of a sudden I was wondering why on earth I didn't paint them, since they didn't look very good anymore and were very boring anyway.
So I did. Sanded them, put a base coat on, and painted one with dots and the other one with doodles.
The black and white one still needs to be varnished, the other one is finished.
Here's how they started out:
and after I put a base coat on:
Some progress-shots of the dot painted one:
And the end result:
I completely forgot to take progress-pics of the doodled one, but here are some details photos:
And the complete tray:
That was fun! And it makes me happy when I use it :-)
I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday, click the link if you want to see more art by people from all over the world.
Of course, in 2017 I will continue my funnies. Here they are!
And a more serious one to end:
Take care, thanks for visiting, and have a beautiful day ♥ ♥ ♥
