I can barely keep track of all the different projects I've started- or at least want to start. Here's a look at the latest.
That's right, those are vintage Bingo markers, and a bag of them was delivered to my door this morning. When I saw them in an Etsy shop three days ago, a light bulb went off in my head. I figured the blank wood markers would make great magnets. I try to add a little something to all my Etsy orders, so I was thinking a few of these with every purchase might be nice.
Seeing that I like to paint on wood, I've been wanting to do something with this guy.
I found this wood whale in a Goodwill store at the Oregon coast. It has a beautiful contour, and I love how minimal it is. The only markings are the carved words "Middleton, Canada" on the bottom of the piece. I'm assuming this is where the whale was made.
I haven't sketched out anything yet, but I'm thinking of painting waves along the bottom edge and different patterns on the tail. I also want to create some kind of design at the top of the whale where the blowhole would be.
. . . now to just add a few more hours to my day.
