Spring has sprung… (pt. 2)

OK -- we were talking about a young birdy couple needing a place to stay. Well, this space was recently renovated. I’ll show you the “before” & “after” pics:

  1. Nice. Anything music related sings to me. :) How did you cover the "S" using Modpoge?

    1. Wow Cammie! Your question sent me on a search for pictures of the process & they are dated way back in October 2010! I had no idea I'd done that so long ago. The music that I découpaged on the large papier-mâché "S" was just the copied music I used for piano when I was in worship band. I tore it into various strips then applied with Michael's version of Mod Podge. I then "aged" it with brown glaze, then gold glaze over that. After a few days I thought it needed a little more depth, so I gold-leafed parts of it.


What do you think?
