One of my favorite things to do, is to take a pattern that I love, and find a surface in my stash that it will fit on. When I got Shara Reiner’s latest book, Funky Folk Art, I set off on the adventure of finding surfaces that her fun and funky designs would fit on. I painted the Halloween design (that she painted on the cabinet), on the Spider Web Welcome Cutout from last fall. I had such fun painting this in the fresh color palette, and think it turned out darn cute. While I was on a roll, I took her design that she’d painted on a canvas banner, and reduced it a bit to fit on an 11” X 14” stretched canvas. I had such a good time! Have you done this too?
So, we thought that it would be fun to see how you’ve used a pattern and adapted it to fit onto an alternative surface. Leave us a post telling us about your creative use of a surface and favorite pattern.
