MMM - Numbers & Recycle/Repurpose



Recently I did an online painting course with Karyn Gartel. So along a similar line to what we did in that class, here is my row of houses titled "My Street".

This also fits the theme for MMM which is numbers *****edit***** seeing as I only just scraped into the MMM Numbers theme, I'm going to use this one also for teh recycle and repurpose theme. The background has loads of scrapbooking papers in it that i dont like the pattern of any more, so covered with paint. Also the frame is one I bought from ebay and is 16" x 20" and was actually a brown stain. So I painted it with black Gesso and along the sides have painted stripes of white gesso. thanks for looking.
