More Classroom Art and a FB Giveaway

Last night I finally scratched another thing off of my {July to-do list}.

Nothing too complicated about it. I used a pickle jar to make my circles. I put a little paint on the rim and pressed it where I wanted the circles to go so there weren't any pencil marks. Then I used a Q-tip to make the dots around the circle and to paint the edges of the circles. Then I used a foam brush to paint in the circles. I stink at lettering, so I used my Silhouette to cut out my name. I wanted to do vinyl, but I didn't have a color that looked nice with it. Then I was going to use it to create a stencil and sponge paint my name, but I didn't think that the edges would be as sharp as I wanted and I knew that there would be problems with the middles of some of my letters. So I decided to Mod Podge the letters cut out by my Silhouette. That made certain areas shiny, so I ended up Mod Podging the whole canvas.
