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…??!
This is WONDERFUL!
Well now, ‘the crazy sheep lady’ doesn’t surprise me!!! It really was simple and F U N to create!! I never get tired of creating sheepies!!
That is great! Love your blog.
Thanks for following!! I’ve been absent for a while… I need to get back into a routine and jot things down in my blog (:
Love it! No surprise there…you’re always so creative and spot on!
HAHAHA!! You ladies are as ‘sheep-silly’ as I am, but, who cares!! Never enough sheep, right!!?
Your flock of sheep art is fabulous! Great job, and I’m sure you will enjoy it for many years to come. 🙂
This is adorable. You are so creative and ewe-nique yourself.
Oh I love your wall art! Great work! Your new work space is going to be wonderful!
The inspiration piece is lovely too xx
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. 😉
