I have been busy re-doing my room. This is one of the projects. It was pretty easy. First, I scanned some old photos of when my kids were little, then I printed them in sepia tones on plain computer paper. Then, I arranged them like a collage on the inner panels of the doors and used Mod Podge to glue them on. I painted the recessed border with burgundy folk art paint and put a light layer of antique metallic gold on it for kind of a gold leaf look. When that was all dry, I Mod Podged the tops of the photos. It looks really vintage now!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
