wooly wednesday: sheep on the go!

I have been cleaning/re-organizing my ‘new’ work space for weeks now! I needed to C R E A T E something with a piece of scrap canvas that I had purchased (quite a while ago) at a tag sale for a whopping $3.

THIS wooly sheep blanket provided inspiration for my canvas wall art.

My husband made a DIY frame from scrap lumber to which we stapled the canvas.

I applied several coats of Gesso/primer. I then re-created (sketched) multiples of my ‘logo’ sheep onto the canvas.

Because I wanted to create a ewe-nique texture (and reproducible pattern) for each individual sheep, I used an assortment of plain old rubber stamps that I had in my collection.

I used black acrylic paint for the head and legs and hand-applied/inked the stamp (also with acrylic paint) and worked within the outline of my sheep to create a ‘wooly fleece’. Each sheep’s fleece is ewe-nique… can you see??

The finished canvas measures about 43-inches by 31-inches and will grace my wall in my work space… as soon as I attach some hanging hardware [wink]. TA DA… my “Sheep on the Go” wall art masterpiece.

I even added a black sheep. Every family/flock has one…??!

    • Thank you! Never enough sheep… heehee.

      I’m still ‘organizing’ my work space, but, it’s coming together nicely. I’m happy to isolate my creative mess to [almost] one room!! I still need a door – a nice vintage/recycled one with ‘character’ and former life. 😉
