I went to Ross the other day. I usually stay away from that place because the one here in town is sort of...well, gross. But sometimes I can find little treasures hidden on the back of a shelf somewhere, needing a new home.
On the clearance shelf, I found this little sign.
Because it had been roughed up somewhere along the way and had a little chunk missing from the top, I got it for $2.99.
And while I'm sure some of you would just take a brown marker to fill in the broken area, I'm far too ambitious for that. (ha!) Besides, while this bronze color is nice, it didn't really do anything for me. So I gave it a quick coat of white paint.
And added some raw umber glaze I had from previous art projects.
I like how it turned out, but...I don't know. It still doesn't feel right. It almost seems too "girly" for my tastes. Any suggestions?
Cissy and Sammi say hi!
