Spray Paint Nature Art, cont’d

Alright, just for you guys, because I love you sooooo much – I finished the last canvas tonight instead of packing for our trip. And now I’m writing this post instead of packing. And later I’ll probably take a nap instead of packing. JUST KIDDING. By the time I’m done with this post, Mr. T will be home and we’ll have to leave. So I must type fast. And stop rambling about unimportant things.

As I mentioned previously, I still needed to spray paint the hammered copper over the brown of my last canvas. The one that is different than all the other canvases. The one that gets picked last for dodge ball and eats lunch in the bathroom so he doesn’t have to feel so alone.

I was actually kind of excited about this one. I had a plan! I even put tape down to mimic a stalk, so it wouldn’t get lost like all the other ones. Here is a picture:Spray Paint Nature Art

I even put cute little seeds like they were floating away from it. I TRIED, guys. I TRIED. Even after the debacle from before….I triiiiiiiied.

Yeaaaaaah….. It was an uber fail. UBER FAIL. There was much weeping. BUT! I didn’t give up! Even after all this, I stayed strong! I broke the little guy up into bits, so he would lay totally flat on the canvas. And I tried, tried again. You could write a children’s book about all my trying, guys.  I’m a trooper!

I took two pictures – pre and post spray paint. Yeah, I just went back over where it had been with the brown and then laid them all down on it and the spray painted it again with the copper. So that area ended up being a bit more coppery, but I DO NOT CARE. I’m done with this craft for all time. lol!

Anyway, here is the finished product:

Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. I wish I had put more of the loose ones closer to the bunch, because there is kind of a weird gap there. And the “stem” is far too dark. But whateva. I’m happy. After I get them all up in the gallery I’ll take a group shot, maybe. You know, for an art gallery we have terrible lighting. >.<
