Pottery Barn Called!

Just wanted to show you my most recent creation......No, I am not classically trained in the Arts...
 

Ring...Ring....Ring...


Just a moment~gotta answer the phone....

Hello?

Pottery Barn?

Who?

Yes, this is Mrs. Smith.

Really? 

You would like to commission how many?

Your willing to pay how much?

You would like me to fly to New York City?

When? 

Next week?

Good Morning America?

Oh~Sorry I must have fallen asleep~  

Like I was saying-Not formally trained in the Arts but I think it turned out pretty darn cute.




Here's where the techinal terms come in....I took a canvas, painted it grey, had it outside to dry, kiddos blew bubbles, bubbles popped onto canvas, Mom got MAD, added water-down white over the messed up grey,  cut out letters, pasted map over letters (after I cut out map letters), took brown chalk and antiqued letters and canvas......glued letters onto canvas......There you go~ Master Piece for my kitchen! 


hey it could happen...........     

Pottery Barn call Me!

  5. I don't know what your original plans were but your final project (with your great improvising) turned out fabulous. I like the map letters.

  8. Looks great Jody! I've been in the store in San Fran where Pottery Barn buys a lot of the vintage lettering you see on the walls in their catalogs and they fetch a HEFTY price...I hope they do call you!

  11. That's adorable!
    I wonder if I could get my teenagers to blow bubbles over mine, if I attempted one.
    (If not, could I borrow your kiddos?)
    I think a sign that read PARIS or something or other, with a map of that city would be cute, fashioned after yours...hmmm...
    Very creative!
    Thank you so much for coming by my home today, and the nice comment.
    Oh, by the way, I also have my first give away tomorrow: Happy Spring-themed, if you're interested :)
    Blessings to you!

  13. Hey there, THanks for popping over! I'm so glad I came to visit you!
    I love that! I wouldn't be suprised if PB did call you! ;) Isn't it funny how little sccidents make the best art work? It totally forces you to be creative in new ways.... This is just lovely- Great idea on the map letters!!
