Some things are just kismet, you happen along, and there you are. Or in this case, there it was. A chunk of wood sitting right beside my bear in the middle of downtown. Imagine it sitting just to the right of him.
I wanted to try out the Americana Decor chalky finish paint to see how it did over a rough, untreated surface and it covered like a charm. The intent of my experiment was to see how the multi surface paints would do over it, and I have to say, they did exceptionally well! I also used an old stamp set ( from 1983 ) to stamp the scene over the surface. I did have to fill in a lot of areas since the surface wasn't smooth enough to stamp on, maybe you can't tell? ( hopefully )
