I like to call this "Olan Mills to Oh, My!" :) 'Cause I'm dorky like that. It started as a blonde wood Olan Mills frame I picked up for $1.50 at Goodwill. You can barely see the cute flower carving with all that blonde woodgrain overwhelming it. I started by painting it with Bahama Sea and then brought out the details with some Midnight Blue acrylic (went from brush to rag to fingers). It looked a little blah, so I mixed more Midnight Blue with some Metallic Teal and finger-smushed the rest of the frame to add some depth. Add an old calendar print and voila! Instant cabin-worthy art!
Comment with questions and I'll flesh out my "pictutorial" as needed!
